Find Beaders and share designs, ideas, and inspiration!


My favorite thing about being part of Lima Beads is the culture of beading. Whether they’re doing it for hobby, trying to start their own thing, or have already found success as a jewelry designer – beaders are an awesome bunch of people. I love being around the creative energy and wouldn’t trade it for any other job.

    It has been a rough few days, but our servers are back up and we’re faster than ever. There shouldn’t be any further problems accessing our site. Thanks for your patience! The Easter egg hunt really killed us :)

    Hi Kevin,
    You asked for feedback: re: LB site speed. Short version, YES,faster.
    Long version: I gave up the search feature, this only worked and then twitchy during my late night hours (early am for you). I can report that this feature is greatly improved, all over speed is noticeable. My internet is reasonably fast.
    Thank you.

    Does it feel like the web site is faster to anyone? That’s why we were down for a few hours this morning. We significantly upgraded our servers :)

    I have just spent 2 hours on this site and I am loving it. Been ill with many surgeries this past year; in saying that I left a job that had me in the craft world for 12 years so with all my sitting I have self taught myself beading and I am excited about sharing and getting real honest answers whether I can sell these or not. You all have such great comments and seems to care so much about your fellow beader Yahooo! I feel so blessed to see this site on Facebook :)
