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.

  • Science Chick Runs Sibes commented on the Fresh Pick “mimosa”   7 months, 3 weeks ago

    Congrats on POD.

    Had you considered using the blueberry/lemon crystals with citrine? Or, not pastel like with lovely Pick, lapis with citrine?

  • Science Chick Runs Sibes commented on the Design “Guardian bracelets”   10 months, 3 weeks ago

    Fun, informal bracelet idea with a wonderful twist. I too have stones that “find me”–it’s generally the ones that draw me to work with them or that I keep purchasing without have an immediate need/purpose for them.

  • Science Chick Runs Sibes commented on the Fresh Pick “Radiant Orchid”   1 year ago

    Thanks for your compliments. I wanted to see what worked with this year’s color. Now that abalone is back in stock, I know what I’m going to do.

    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.
