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.

    Straight to my favorites. Your theme is wonderful and the color combo is gorgeous!
    Five out of our eight dogs are rescues

  • Lois D commented on the Fresh Pick “Icy Lake”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Gosh, this is a beautiful pick and congratulations on POD!!!

  • Lois D commented on the Design “A Buddhist Way”   1 month ago

    This is a great design and I LOVE brass. How ingenious of you to glaze it with 24 carat gold eye shadow. It looks really nice.
    The filigree pieces (for some reason) remind me of pralines and the larger discs, ginger snaps. I mean that in a good way!

    Ditto to NY Bella’s comment. I like the lay out of this pick as well. Pleasing to the eyes. The Golem Pendant looks wonderful in here; picks up many other colors. Love Golem “anything”
