Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

My name is Paula and I’ve been a bead addict for the last 7 years. My best friend caught the beading bug first and showed me the basics. I started out just going to make one necklace. Right.

Although I’m a native Nebraskan, I left the state after high school and spent the next 40+ years living in or near big Midwestern cities.

    Hello Paula! When we get back to northern Minnesota (Bemidji) I am seriously considering hosting an upper midwest beading week-end. Both my husband and I were born in Minneapolis and built a retirement home on a lake 15 miles out of Bemidji on lakeshore property my dad bought in1968. What goes around, comes around, doesn’t it?
    Take care and be well. M
