Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


Jack of all trades; master of none :) 57 years old, married, no human children, but countless ‘kids’ of the feathered, furred, and scaled varieties – LOL

Back in the Stone Age, I worked a ‘real job’ in biomedical and radiopharmaceutical research. My passion is for animals of all kinds (undergrad. degree in Veterinary Medicine/grad. work in Biochemistry – would love to have been a vet, but didn’t have enough brains).

Have been a wildlife ‘rehabber’ and educator for decades.
Love all of God’s Creation and am most comfortable amongst the ‘lesser brethren’ :) Love to share the message with people of all ages.

Hubby and I have a small ‘hobby farm’ with a plethora of rescue animals of several species. Moved back to Maine in early 2000′s to care for ailing parents who had retired here. Brought our ‘kids’ with us.

We call AZ our ‘adopted home state’ and hope to return soon. Will bring all our ‘kids’ who remain back with us when we go :) – another cross-country “Noah’s Ark” road trip.

Love beading and jewelry making and focus on bead embroidery when my hands allow that kind of work. Admire all here on LB – such talent – and enjoy viewing their creations :)

No web site yet, but may in the near future.

Like others have said, it really does help with keeping the knots positioned correctly and keeping the tension consistent. This is such a [...]

    One of my all-time favorite books. Likewise, the movie. Love this pick; straight into ‘favorites’

    No, wait, I mean JUDY, yes, JUDY! OH MY GOSH, it is too early for me to be typing congratulations.

    Judy, I love the color combination. Gorgeous! I have some of those tribal squares and they are beautiful.
