Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!



My name is Lynn (really it is LOL) and I have been beading for about 4 years now.

My initial love was gemstones and whilst I still love them, I prefer seed beading around them.

I loathe stringing these days and would rather climb razor wire than string beads.

I did have a shop in my home town until recently, when I was diagnosed with depression. Since then my life has mainly been about therapy and Dr’s appointments.

I am selling off my entire shop stock on Etsy. It is a slow process but I am getting there.

I have had three tutorials published in Beads Etc magazine (an Australian bead mag, completely inferior to the fantastic American ones), and I have also had an article on Peyote Stitch published in it.

You can see pictures of two of my pieces that were done as turorials in the Design Gallery. One is called Sea Spray and the other is Okeanos.

    Doe, this is a real mix of beads- bead soup Lima now have a fantastic range of seedies and cabs and freshwater pearls and then all you need is to go along to Amazon and get Beverly Ash Gilberts book on Colours and you too could be doing something like this.

    The great thing about freeform beadwork [...]

    Hi Lynn – I’ve considered Etsy, but I’m not always good at following through with things so I’m worried about shipping in a timely manner.

    Hope your health is improving.

    I am having quite a bit of success on Etsy… it can be tough though. You need to list things sporadically and advertise your shop heaps!

    Can’t hurt for you to try it though :)

    Hi, Lynn! Glad to hear you don’t have to close your Etsy shop — it’s really great! How do you like it there? I’m thinking of starting up one on Etsy this summer & I’ve heard a lot of good things about them. :D

    Hi :)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I am not closing down my Etsy site, just my actual shop that I have. I am going through some stuff and I just don’t have the time for it, and I have a shop full of beads that can’t just sit around LOL
