Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

Hi,
I am Malin, Swedish, 44. I live in a small house in the countryside just outside Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. With my English husband, our 2 children  and 2 ginger cats. 

I used to work as a Graphic Designer, although I actually have a Master in Industrial Design. And I have studied art and painting too.

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with a decease called MS (Multiple Sclerosis). I have had it at least since I was 20, without knowing it. The last years though I have gradually become more and more disabled in various ways due to the illness and therefor I don’t work anylonger. 

But I do still have a very strong urge to work with colors and forms, composing, constructing and producing beautiful, interesting things. So I got into beading. And I just love it! I feel there are so many exciting techniques to learn and a universe to keep exploring of beautiful beads and materials to make jewelery of. 

I surf around a lot on various beading sites to find inspiration and buy material. Lima Beads is one of my absolute favourite sites.

Other things that are important to me are my family and friends, drinking coffee, music, gardening, learning new things and lots more.

I have a blog since the beginning of 2010. Please visit, comment and become a follower. I would be honoured!

Bye for now & lots of love to everyone! /Malin

    Hi there everyone,
    I have not been active here on Lima Beads for about a month now. I hope you can forgive me. This is such a strong community with lots and lots of really nice people that I really like.
    Anyway I have started my own blog, so I might not hang around here as much as I did before (I got addicted when I had just entered).

    Check out my blog and PLEASE become a follower.

    All my best,
    Malin

    Heavy snowing is expected here over the weekend. So I will probably stay at home and hopefully be doing a lot of beading. Good night!
