Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m elderly and a widow with 2 sons, 2 granddaughters, 1 grandson, 2 daughters-in-law, and 1 dog. I started beading late in life and became very hooked on it. I especially loved gemstones, semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski, quality Czech, and anything especially pretty.

I used to make classic designs and occasionally go out of my comfort zone. I posted a few of my pieces way back when. But eventually my hands wouldn’t allow me to do much so I’ve tried selling my beads but that didn’t work unless I was practically giving them away. Decided that was too much work for so little money. So now I give away beads asking folks to at least pay for the postage.

I used to sell on Etsy but my camera disappeared and I don’t have a smart phone. So I don’t even try to make anything.

I gradually learned to know more and more about Jane and decided she and I should do trades: my beads for some of her jewelry. That’s been fun. Since I have plenty of girls and women in my family, I can give away quite a few pieces of Jane’s jewelry

I have been here creating picks for a while now and getting to know folks here… I have to say this is one of the greatest places I’ve ever been. Great people!

    Good point about the poor owls. I hate all that noise – it goes on for so long. Thankfully it doesn’t seem to ever bother my little dog. They used to keep setting them off until 2AM but I think someone called the police to stop it. I was about to call if they hadn’t. Midnight [...]
