Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I live in the Southwest with my hubby, dog, and birds. My first exposure to beading was almost 30 years ago when I purchased some thread and acrylic beads. Life got way too busy and the beads went into storage. Through a friend, my love for beading was renewed and out came all the supplies! Now I’m a certified beading ‘addict’ and you can’t imagine the supplies I now have! Hubby jokes about “the house foundation cracking because of the weight of all those stones!” I love to bead and especially love working with gemstones and deco Czech glass. I also enjoy creating a variety of styles and designs.

I am so happy to have found Lima Beads and all their great products, and all of you wonderful beaders out there! Thanks for all the inspiration you have given me!

    Oh, wow! This is absolutely incredible with all the detailed work involved in this design. The balance of color & beads is perfect. The Chrome Diopside is a super addition with its deeper green color. This is truly a work of art!

    I think the variety of focal points in this bracelet are wonderful. I really enjoy everything about it. I like how you doubled up the peanuts seeds with the ring chain. No matter which side shows on the wrist, it is great from all sides!

    Hey Crystal. Got your wire message. I’m doing pretty good actually. Not really beading much but buying beads is another story. I know I have been saying this for years but I am actually in the process of getting my entire house reorganized. Hopefull I will make some jewelry then.

    Hope you are well. Loved your bracelet.

    Hi CC it’s so good to hear from you. I tried sending you a message last night but I guess that didn’t go through. We’ve missed your positive presence in the Design Gallery. I sure hope you find the precious time to bead and post again. Hearing from you made my day.

    Hi Crystal! My car was an Altima, 2013 I think. I had an Altima before that & I guarantee I’ll be getting another! I still want to test drive in case they changed something. They have a great ride & the seat fits me—very comfy. I get the big engine cuz I like to zip! Should have been a race car driver…Thank you for your thoughts. I do find that I’m a bit more sensitive than usual. And I’m a little nervous driving an unfamiliar car in Houston traffic. It happens to be a Nissan Rogue. Drives nice but I’m just not an SUV chick! Anyway, so nice to hear from you❤️

    WOW! It’s been a long time! I’m greatly missing my time here at Lima visiting with everyone (not to mention beading & creating) and wish life would ’put on the brakes’! Missing you all! :)
