The Design Gallery is here!

Posted by Steve on June 18 at 03:39 pm

Design GalleryIt’s been a couple of exciting weeks at Lima Beads. Last week, we launched The Garden, a community for beaders to collaborate and share ideas. This week, we’re launching the Design Gallery! The Design Gallery is a collection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other pieces that are created by YOU! Everyone’s pieces can be included in the gallery, and you can check them out here.

Gallery picThe Design Gallery has photos and descriptions of the pieces, along with a listing of components that the designer used. Some designs will even include step-by-step directions on how to create the piece yourself. And of course, anyone with a Lima Beads account can comment on the designs and share their thoughts, ideas, and compliments.

Adding your own designs is easy…

We’re excited to see what all of our beading customers create! And we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have in the comments.

    Woo HOOO! I was checking obsessively earlier in the day, so much that I had to distract myself for a while with a Cowboy Junkies album and baking a pie! Pie’s in the oven and the Gallery is open- life is great! Thanks LB folks!

    I was so excited when the Gallery opened that I forgot to leave a comment here. I have been waiting for this for such a long time, and I couldn’t be happier! The gallery is awesome! Not only does it give us inspiration, but it also lets us know the designer a little better.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work (and here you are busy with your new space, and still taking time to please us all).

    Hey Steve, a few of us have been noticing that the ‘Fresh Pick of the Day’ is missing again from the top of the Fresh Picks page. Probably another glitch since the Gallery opened. Just so you know….

    Oops, sorry! I just noticed that the pick of the day is back! Please disregard the previous comment. :-D

    I love the Design Gallery! I do, however, have one suggestion. Can you make it possible to have a favorites list (like you do with fresh picks) so that if you really like one, you won’t have to go back & search for it? Thanks! ;)

    I loved looking through the Design Gallery and found plenty of good ideas. I hope you are working on a way for use to make a site selection to begin where I left off; artist look-up; color and/or bead look-up in the near future. I am sure that soon there will be thousands of photos to view. Wonderful idea… gold star to whoever thought up this idea.

    It’s great for a beginner in beading to have such great inspiration.
