Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


My husband and I live in central Illinois with our two kids. I started beading about 5 years, when I needed a gift for my twin sister’s first mother’s day. Our mom was extremely talented and I have just a hint of her creativity. My business began when people started buying jewelry off my neck. I sold pieces out of my home and at shows. I opened a store called Bead Buzz Jewelry Designs in our small town, of Princeton, in October of 07. I have just discovered the lima beads site and I am hooked! I love it!
