Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


My name is Donna and I am from West Chester, Ohio a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. I am retired. I found this site in 2012. I retired in May 0f 2013. But, I just have started to be able to design and make jewelry. Like most of you, I have elderly parents that drained me of my creative spirit. Now, my Mother, who is almost 90, is in a long term facility. So, the time has finally come to make some jewelry. I aspire to hone this craft and find my focus in designing. I would love to have a shop on Etsy like most of you. This site and all of you help me every day to make my life transition. Thanks to you all.

    KYE, YOU ARE MY APPARITION ARTIST TO BECOME! You are so talented. I should check this blog more often. I just bought the gel also. Beautiful necklace and a lucky friend.

  • Poms Forever aka Donna commented on the Design “Elephant In The Room”   2 years, 10 months ago

    Just the most beautiful and balanced necklace that I have seen in a while. You did a perfect design to highlight that beautiful pendant! The beads chosen are truly an extension of the pendant.

    Your mixture of seed beads for your request is so beautiful and right on point. What a beautiful bracelet!

    Donna, what happened to your picture icon? I don’t see your little Pom anymore. I enjoyed seeing him. Hope it’s not my tablet–I’ve been trying to post comments with it rather than the desktop. Take care, Crystal

    Hope you get this. I just got back home after 2 1/2 weeks. My aunt is much better & happily settled in a well-run Catholic nursing home. I have a ton of beading stuff to put away! Hope things get better with your mom’s situation. Prayers for you ❤️

    Janet, I am back. Just a lot of draining stuff with the death of my Father and my Mother diving deeper into her dementia. Trying to help my Sisters emotionally. My Mom has taken out her anger on them. Anyway, I am more driven to do what makes me happy. I am shooting to have an Etsy shop like you. I check your shop often and always love all of your pieces. Don’t focus on the amount you sell right now but what is selling and expand on that. I read that somewhere! LOL You are doing great! Your friend Donna P.S. I have got to check for messages. S O R R Y!
