This week's Circular: The Vault and a Sale on Artist Beads
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’ve been playing around with beads for years and am completely addicted. My favorites are African Kazuri beads, Mexican-style beads and milagros, Tibetan beads, Kashmiri beads, wood and seed beads, filigree, anything carved, inlaid or painted, and anything with an “ethnic” look to it. I love big, bold and colorful designs and a few of my favorite gemstones are fire agate, turquoise, citrine, amber, malachite, fossil coral, ammonite, turritella, and black stone in funky cuts and shapes.

    Hello Ivy
    Thanks for your message! Good to hear from you. Thanks for the wishes on my pregnancy. We are both doing fine :-) Today, I am 6 months pregnant. The baby is due in January. I hope everything will continue to evolve in a positive way. I enjoy being pregnant, it really is a wonderful feeling. Take care!
