Personal

Hello I’m Candy Helms aka Texas Chick. I currently live in a small community called Hickory Creek that’s close to Lake Lewisville. Denton, TX is about 12 miles north, Lewisville is about 5 minutes south & Dallas maybe 20 minutes south. The loves of my life are my two beautiful grandsons Alex & Aiden. Alex will be 5 this August and Aiden will turn 3 this May. My son, Thompson and my daughter-in-law Jen, live about 40 minutes away. I am so blessed to have them that close in a state the size of Texas. I’ve been beading about 3 years now. Found LB website right in the middle of the 09 Easter Egg Hunt. Had so much fun finding the beads I placed an order and became a forever loyal customer after recieving that first shipment of beads! Most of my sales are from word of mouth and friends. That works well for right now. I hope to put some of my work in the design gallery this year.

    Lovely! I have so much fun taking dated jewelry pieces, breaking them down then creating something fresh with the components. Great design!
    I too think your sister with fall in love with this necklace.

    Pearl & Lapis necklace is stunning. I love pearls, but in using them I have trouble keeping my designs from looking too formal. Your creation strikes the perfect balance. I can see wearing this necklace with jeans and just as easily with more formal attire. Love the design!!

    Hi everyone. I’ve been out of pocket for some time. Back now and asking for your understanding and forgiveness for the long delay in responding to friendship requests in The Garden site. Candy
