Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I am over fifty and under sixty. Absolutely love beads and designing jewelry. Have been making jewelry since I was about ten. When I was younger I sang in bands for a living. I love to laugh and I also love to make others laugh. I am married to a wonderful man who is willing to sit in the car reading a book while I spend three or more hours in a good bead store. We live in the desert but I grew up about a half hour away from the ocean. I miss it. I’ve been writing a book for four years. Don’t know if I will ever finish it but it’s fun anyway. I only have one sibling. My sister is nine years younger than her older sister. We are best friends. I work part time for a estate sale business and I have a great boss! Oh, and she hates it when I introduce her as my boss instead of my friend. My mother lives with us. She’s the best and I love her dearly. I feel very blessed to live the life I live!

That gooey, slurppy, sucking noise uh oh, they’re coming for you! So do not drink the Toxic Zombie Slime the cocktail of the undead [...]

    Hi Nancy with a y. Thank you for Friend-ing me. I’ve had so much fun since joining the Lima Beads family. What could be better than new friends a loads of beads? Well maybe wining the lottery for a gazillion dollars. But I’m trying to be realistic. Although I am still waiting for Ed McMahan to knock on my door (is he even still alive?)! Anyway, it’s always great to make a new friend and I am glad to have you as one:)
