Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


With a background in art and media, a B.A. from UCLA, a history of travel, and a long time interest in beads, I moved from Southern California to Salem, Oregon, where I live now. I like to garden, mostly in containers. When I get creative I really go, but I have periods of just waiting, and gathering supplies and inspirations.

    Thanks friends! If I get some of that peaceful rest soon, maybe I’ll have the creative energy I want! I need to sort, discard, organize, celebrate.

    Wild and crazy necklace! At first I thought the fish were cookies. Quickly my brain adjusted. You did the water very well. This necklace would sure be a conversation starter. I love how you kind of paint with beads.

  • Melody F commented on the Design “Got the blues?”   4 days, 11 hours ago

    Both necklaces are neat! I am new to wire working, and I wonder if I might try something similar to your wrapped gear, on a simpler scale, perhaps with fewer spokes. I definitely like the idea of a cold capture in metal of a stone cabochon. Thanks for sharing.
