Hi, fellow Bead Addicts! I’m Lynn aka Lynn Eileen aka Chicky LE. I am 59 yrs old & live in Kokomo, IN (1 hr north of Indianapolis). My birthday is Jan. 4, so I’m a Garnet Gal.
I’ve been married for 39 yrs to the same husband(!), Bob. Our daughter Suzanne lives with her husband Dave & their children in southern IN (about 2 hrs from us). We have 3 precious & adorable granddaughters ~ Jenna (8 yrs), Kaitlyn (6 yrs), & Aubrey (5 yrs). My Mom passed in 2009; luckily, I am very close with my Dad, my brother David, & my sister Kathy. All of my family & friends are super-supportive of my beading hobby aka business aka addiction!
Besides my family & beading, I am crazy about dogs, animal rights, reading, & crossword puzzles. We have had 2 toy poodles, Angel & Shelby, who brought such joy to our lives! Both are now waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge.
2011 ~ We now have a new fur baby! Coco is a 3-year-old light brown toy poodle. She is another dog we rescued (from a puppy mill ) and has settled in with us beautifully!
I have been beading since the Fall of 2006 ~ it is my passion!!! I do a lot of stringing, knotting, wirework, & metalwork; make fused glass pendants & ceramic beads; & work with precious metal clay. I am always taking fun classes to learn new skills and/or improve my existing ones. So far, I’ve sold my jewelry by word-of-mouth & via the Design Gallery! I also hope to start my own website and/or do home parties to sell my jewelry designs.
I love the new friends I have met on LB & look forward to getting to know them better in The Garden!!! The support of my wonderful Chicks has gotten me through some tough times. Chicks rule!
