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.

    I just found your glass pebbles necklace Ali, March 2016. Good designs are timeless. I have to make a couple of these so I’m ready for summer. So lovely.

    Hi Steve and the gang. Thanks for a fun hunt this year. I found my 30 eggs, got the prizes I wanted plus a “few” things I fell in love with during my foraging for eggs. To the highly competitive top 10 on the leaderboard my hat is off to you. Hope someone finds all 300 [...]

    Lovely! I have so much fun taking dated jewelry pieces, breaking them down then creating something fresh with the components. Great design!
