Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!

Personal

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!

    Kye, the double wire wrap around the beads is excellent! I’m not sure I’ve seen the wrap done like this before–was it tough to do? I really like the transition between the focal & chainmaille using the spotted green beads. The speckles in them bring a unification of color & metal in this design. I wouldn’t [...]

    This is one special necklace! Every element combines so well with the others. I especially like the subtle blue hues from the Calcite cubes picking up the blue in the focal. The Picture Jasper has me seeing this little guy scurrying and playing in & out of the bushes & trees. And to top it off, [...]
