Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


I’m elderly and started beading late in life and am very hooked on beads – mostly semi-precious gemstones. But I do like Czech crystals and other high quality crystals and lampwork. I do work with a variety of beads and findings.

I make classic designs and occasionally go out of my comfort zone.

I’m a widow with 2 sons, 1 granddaughter, 1 grandson, 2 daughters-in-law, 1 cats and 1 dog.

I have been here creating picks for a while now and getting to know folks here and I have to say this is one of the greatest places I’ve ever been. Great people! I don’t show many designs as my skills are limited.
