My name is Cindy Boswell. My husband Dennis and I have been married for over 15 years. We have three beautiful children… two girls and a boy. I became interested in beading about seven years ago when my mother took it up as a hobby. When I was thirty years old I started have chronic pain along with other symptoms. My son was just a baby and I was having an extremely difficult time taking care of him. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and severe fibromyalgia in 2011. This year I was also diagnosed with CFS/ME. I have so many designs floating around my mind but the rest of me is mostly bedridden. I can’t sit up or stand for long without excruciating pain. So actually turning those designs into something real has been a huge challenge. But everytime I see something and it gives off that creative spark, I can’t explain how that feels to me. Fibro and CFS/ME effect our congnitive thought processes and short term memory. But building beautiful pieces of jewelry in my mind gives me peace. So, I’ve made the decision to really put myself into my dream. I don’t want to throw away such lovely visions. It will be scary and thrilling at the same time. I love the support that I see being given here amongst the different artists….. Which is the reason I’m here. I came for the products but stayed because of the positive, creative and encouraging environment. So…. wish me luck! I hope to have a few projects posted by New Year’s. I can’t wait to see something I poured myself into, an idea that I made tangible, displayed here on Lima Beads!!!!!!

    Hi Ms. Nancy! I love all the cluster earrings you have posted here. I was wondering if you could maybe post some tips and tricks for making these perfect little ear sparklies. I’ve made a few pairs but I can’t seem to get the cluster as full as I’d like. I’m hoping you can give your [...]
