This Week at Lima: Go for the Gold and Save — Plus, it's Free Shipping February!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Come November, 2009 I will be 80 years old. I make jewelry to sell and, of course, have something to do besides vegetate. I like to make Jewelry that is big and bold and for anyone who wants to wear something with a story behind it. In other words, a conversation piece. I like the challenge of wire jewelry, except I don’t do the real intricate work that other artists accomplish. I admire certain well known wire artists such as Iza Malczyk, Sharilyn Miller, and Eni Oken. I search the net for beads and pendants that have a special color, or evoke a special meaning. I tend to work in specific themes and choose beads to carry out that theme. My blog is below. Thanks for listening.
