This week: Design with Love and Save! Make Mom Happy AND Get 15% Back!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


The name’s Gayle. I live in Northern Utah (longest I’ve lived anywhere now), but I still feel like I’m a New Yorker (both worlds of it–grew up a true Upstater and went to college in “The City”). I’ve been a rock-hound since I was a youngster and love the patterns in stones; I also find art in nature. That ‘art’ is what I use for my inspiration–both the stones as I work their patterns into necklaces and attempting to recreate scenes from nature in my work. I’ve been a “serious” (ie, it’s a business) jewelry designer for almost 10 years (anniversary coming up this autumn).

I love the outdoors–exploring nature as I hike/run trails with one of our sibes (yes, that’s them in my picture, Niki and Chilli (on her ‘throne’)). I find some of my focal pieces when I’m out on trails. The occasional stone will trip me–’asking’ to be taken home, cleaned up and wire-wrapped as a pendant. The breath-taking scenery of the US West is where I find some of my inspiration–when I remember to look up from rock-hounding, that is.

    Hooray! I just finished data entry and paperwork filing for my biz. That should be it for 2010–except for one outstanding order. First time I’ve got the data entry done before the end of January!

    Hi Mommykat BC and all other beading chicks…I’ve been AWOL from LB’s Garden for a time–playing in the garden is my reward for finishing my daily to-do list. That list got longer and longer after I started substitute teaching this Spring. I’m finally catching up as sub’bing has ended for the summer.
