Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I think I may be the token nerd here. I like beads and beading because I like rocks and minerals, as well as for the creative and visual apsects. I like wirewrapping because of what you (not me yet – you-all) can do with it. Also because the way the wore works reminds me of some topics I studied at length in metallurgy.

Given the number of women who study metallurgy, with that tidbit and my first name, you can probably get my real life identity. Oh well! So I’m letting my freaky geeky flag fly, and trying to make some “pretty” out of all the cool rocks (gemstones to you guys)

  • So I just bopped in after a several month hiatus (setting up my Etsy site among other things) and lo and behold – there’s a “winner” to the garlic or chocolate conundrum. Watermelon. Agree – goes with neither. Priorities.

  • And this one was sold on Etsy – My first Etsy sale!

    Anyone have any insights into Etsy versus Artfire versus Yessy versus 1000 Markets?

    Etsy is just sooo crowded and hard to use!

  • So, I brought this to a show and it’s the first thing I sold there. Go figure.

    Getting the impression that I’m one of the faster two-fingered typists (OK sometimes three fingers) in the Garden??

    Hi folks;
    Just some useful info (most of you probably already know this) – people can see the designs pages from your profile even if they aren’t registered. good way to point people to online photos of your designs. GO to Garden -> my profile then click My designs under your handle. copy the web address that shows up on the address bar. People who go to that address can see your gallry of designs!

    Design trend heads up;
    I just glanced at the jjill online flier and they’re showing a LOT of natural earthy semi-precious stone jewelry. Not nearly as nice as the items on display here, but have a look at the trend (and get an idea of what people expect to pay for mass-produced). May help someone market the ”one of a kind with important handcrafted details” version of the trend.

    Hey, Regina!

    I like your idea about sharing/helping each other with pricing ideas — that’s always a tricky area for me.

    Also, I love your idea for Jeanne’s earrings — I added another comment on her design post! Great thinking!!! :D

    Have you given any thought to choosing a Chick name for yourself? Also, where do you live? I looked for your profile, but you haven’t posted one yet. I know you used to be here on the site and then came back recently like gangbusters!!! LOL Nice to have you back again! :D

    Bead Happy!
