This Week at Lima: Go for the Gold and Save — Plus, it's Free Shipping February!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I discovered the bead craze 5 years ago, and my fingers & bank account have never been the same. This year my wonderful husband, urged me, to try my luck in the Polymer Clay world. So, almost every night, I go to bed with visions of colors and beads in my head!
Lost my job two years ago, and my husband urges me, to go after my dream! Thank you baby!
I will be 53 in July, I have been married to my “soul mate” for the 6 years. Between us, we have 5 boys, 3 daughter in laws, 9 grandchildren, 7 cats, and 2 dogs! Yes, my home is full, the one stepson, his wife and grandbaby, live with us again. I love all crafts, starting out with crossstitch, embroidery, funny… I loved arts in school.

  • Both chains are nice, however, I must be the “odd” one in the bunch, I like the gunmetal chain. It really “pops” the beautiful colors out!

    Hello to all my friends, have been really sick the last few weeks. Tried to sit down and work on my beads, but, just body and mind just would not let me function. Love all the new designs, hope to be back in my rountine soon.

    Having problems hammering my wire. I know it’s the OP (operator), haven’t had strength in my right arm for awhile. But, I just keep on whacking, and whacking, and zip, nada, nothing. Ughhhh.

    Well, today, my son is getting married. So, I won’t be playing with my stash today. Yesterday, I tried my first piece on making a chain mail bracelet. I have to admit, I got addicted! I need to get on line, and order more wire. So expensive! I can see pretty beads with chain mail, yum! Happy Valentine’s Everybody!
