Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I live in the Southwest with my hubby, dog, & birds. My first exposure to beading was over 30 years ago when I purchased some thread & acrylic beads. Life got way too busy and the beads went into storage. Through a friend, my love for beading was renewed & out came the supplies. Now I’m a certified beading ‘addict’!

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!

  • Crystal Canary commented on the Design “African Kazuri and Brass Bead Necklace”   1 week ago

    I’m with the other gals..definitely a bold necklace with a touch of whimsy from the cut log beads. The little unexpected can surely add big impact. Love the Kuzuris & how you balanced them in the design with the larger African brass. Very nice Althea.
