    Hi Stormy Chick,
    I’m from Yorktown, Virginia, on the east coast. I’m still learning this web site and how to communicate, join groups and all that. I’m working on my first order from LB and hope to place it today. I just keep going back to that big Green Bead Machine just in case there’s something else I need to add to my cart. I can’t wait to get it. This is a wonderful site, with a great community and all of the ways they let us participate.

    Welcome to Lima Beads site. Uh oh you are hooked already BGM has got you by the nose. Just wait until you are gone from home and someone (My husband) says you cannot get away from that computer for 5 minutes. Love the entire necklace. It is gorgeous. Garnets are a favorite of mine and they look wonderful in your design with the amythest.

    Hi again,

    For those who asked about the chain, I got it at the local Michaels, last year. Of course, that was before I found LB.
