I am a retired (disabled) forty-something grandmother of 3 and I discovered beading about 5 years ago when I bought a small beaded and wire wrapped bracelet..I looked at how it was made and thought “I can do that” and then I started looking at beads and I was hooked!! major addiction!! I have collected stones and other bits of nature all my life so Playing with beads just came naturally.My daughter is also an avid beader and my granddaughter Layla (Who is 5 years old) is also catching the bug and often gets in trouble for getting into Moms beads..LOL I am really enjoying the friendliness of the Lima Beads site and of course I LOVE the beads!! Now if only I had the money to buy all that I want…hmmm.. Anybody know where I can get a money tree??

    Thank you Ladies! this peace was quite therapeutic for me… I used 16 gauge wire for the necklace and 18 gauge for the earrings..

    Wow! Thank you every one for the kind comments! I have been collecting these sparkly gems for a while, so I thought it was time to have some fun with them. Also people always ask for purple.. I don’t know why.. but I like it
