(update 3/19/2012:) Hi to all! I am no longer in Texas and have now been beading for about 5 years. I actually started because I had purchased a necklace from a particular store and it just fell apart. When I looked at seeing if I could fix it, I decided that I could make my jewelry myself and probably save $$. So, I got some supplies and promptly became enthralled and then addicted! After that I decided to sell a bit. It has been really fun. I also use my jewelry to raise $$ for SIDS Awareness (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) which is something deep in my heart. My husband and I have been married 37 years (now will be 40 in August 2012)I am quite sure I must have gotten married when I was 3:), survived raising 2 boys – who actually turned out really great despite what we might have predicted as we sloshed through their teenage years. I am pretty sure they were each 15 for about 5 years. We also raised my precious and beautiful niece from the time she was 15 (I was actually only 12 when she was born, so we had always been close)and so she is as if she were our daughter. We have all granddaughters and I tell my sons that the girls are my reward for surviving the two boys:) We are now living in Columbus, Ohio near our sons and daughters-in-law and two of our 6 living grandchildren (all wonderful granddaughters:). After so many years of all of being scattered across the continent, we are just having the best time living near one another – all in Columbus. And if we could only get that thiRd branch here, i don’t think I would ever leVe town again. There is no sight in the world more beautiful than our kids and grandkids! I am excited to learn more from all of you because from the fresh picks and now the design gallery, I know I am in the presence of incredibly talented artists! I still love shopping and learning at LimaBeads!

    Thank you for posting this! It is magnificently joy-inspiring! The colors, the fabulous pendant, the happy, light-hearted, airy feeling of the design all work together to lift hearts and smiles completely fulfill the message! I absolutely love it! This is a forever favorite!!!

  • Kathryn Lobert commented on the Design “Re-Do”   9 months ago

    This one grabbed me because 1] it is quite lovely and, 2] it is reminiscent of a cause that holds my heart. You have multiple wonderful, soft, delicate pieces that feature these shades and this unicorn is particularly special. If you ever are looking for a cause to support, these would be perfect for supporting SIDS [...]

  • Kathryn Lobert commented on the Design “Orange”   9 months ago

    This is STUNNING!!!!! I was just skimming through the site for any last minute sales and your piece basically jumped off the page at me! It is perfect! And, I should add that these are not normally colors I would choose, but the treatment you gave the centerpiece made it glow like mesmerizing flames. You have [...]

    OK – here is the problem with going through each gemstone page. After a few, I realize that I have forgotten about the eggs and am looking at the stones. Then I have to go back until I see a page I remember with no egg. The other thing is how devious this contest is! Just when I decide I have done enough and just am not going to find any more, I find one and am driven further in the search! Eyeballs are spinning!

    I don’t know if it is OK to mention other shops here, but I am just so excited.Most of you know my most important cause is raising SIDS Awareness. I think it was a year ago I submitted a page for the really large online store for SIDS and today I got notice that my page was chosen for this month! More than anything, I would love to have SIDS be over before my granddaughters start having their own children! Anyway, I just had to share!
