This Week: Dollar Days are back with a special Under a Buck section!
Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


Hello! My real name is Cheryl and I live in St. Charles, Missouri (a suburb just outside St. Louis). I have been married to David since 1990 and although we have no children, we consider our cockapoo Skittles our baby! :)
I started beading mid-June of this year (2010) and have really enjoyed making my own jewelry and even selling a few pieces here and there. Jewelry has always been a love of mine since I was a little girl going to Claire’s Boutique and spending hours perusing rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. It’s been amazing how addicting beading can become and how I even dream about combinations and colors – crazy!!!
My full-time job is as a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker Gundaker. It allows me a certain amount of creativity (making brochures for listings and helping to stage my listings), but I find this to be a really great outlet for my creativity.
I enjoy seeing what others have made and take inspiration from everyone on here.

    Eerie, creaking noises, cobwebs, moonlight, twinkling stars, crisp autumn air, those who decorate their homes like a haunted house (castle) – all of this makes the magic of Halloween to me – Boo!

    Love this! I have to ask…how do you have it attached to what appears to be cord of sorts at the neck? I love that look but cannot figure out a nice way of doing it. Gorgeous design – I agree with the others…price it higher so if it doesn’t sell it’s yours and if it [...]

    Thank you Lynn for your kind remarks. I have truly had so much fun playing with the beads as well as on this site and getting to meet the many wonderful people on here (yourself included, of course!)
    I just got back from a ring making class today and am so excited to begin making rings! We made one with a button and one with Chech glass beads and sterling silver components. So cool looking!
    Do you sell your stuff? If so, where? Do you always use sterling? I cannot get over the price and am not sure I would be willing to pay that much for a piece after we add some markup. In a quandry because I cannot possibly wear everything I have made! :)
    How are you and Bob holding up? I was so shocked to hear about your Shelby! Still makes me teary eyed to think of it! Prayers continue to come your way!
    Hugs to you,
