Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m a self-taught beader and enjoy it for the therapy and creativity it provides. I enjoy working with all kinds of stones, gems, and chain. My sister-in-law actually got me started and has proclaimed that she created “a monster beader”! She lives in Taiwan so has provided me with many beautiful stones and chains from the Jade Market in Taipei.

Lima Beads is my favorite beading website–they make it creative and fun and allow for activities other than beading so kudos to them for a fun site–especially the addictive world of fresh picks.

I am employed full time and am taking care of my elderly parents so don’t have as much time as I would like for beading, but I try to make something as often as I can. My biggest hurdle is that I get too many ideas running through my head.
