I live in New Jersey but have lived in Michigan for 19 years after growing up in North Dakota. I have been beading since 2004, mostly bead weaving. I love using lovely gemstones as accents and focals in my work.
The photo I use on Lima Beads is of my dachshund Dugg, a puppy mill rescue in 2008. Dugg is my best boy! He was terrified of everything when I got him but he soon realized that he was finally in a good place and he’s changed into a darling affectionate boy.
You can see photos of my work and more photos of Dugg on my flickr site, URL below.
