Bead Dishes for Bead Artists

Bead Dishes for Bead Artists Available on My Website

These are my all time favorite to bead out of. They are heavy and they are not pushed around easily. They are glazed white on the inside. That makes it easy to grab a bead with your needle. The bottom is not glazed. It is left in bisque form. The bisque is what keeps this heavy little dish from sliding around.

I promise, if you are a seed beader and you try one of these,
it will become your favorite dish.

Bead Business is Booming!

What happens when the local bead store goes out of business and
I get there on the day everything is marked down 75% off?

I buy almost all the Delicas!

Lucky for me not many people in my area appreciate Delica beads.

Due to this great find I am now going to offer some of
my beaded needle cases in the form of a kit.

BOLO for them Coming Soon.

Beaded Needle Case Patterns landed in South Africa

How is it that some of us are so easily inspired?
Is it the awe we feel when we see?

Today my needle case patterns landed in South Africa.

This has inspired me to make my next collection of needle case patterns dedicated to Africa.

Thanks Richard.

Needle Case Pattern Passion Flower

This is my favorite flower. The first time I saw one I was horseback riding in the woods behind my house. I had stopped for a rest. When I looked down there it was. At first I thought it was artificial. I had never seen a flower like this before. Later I discovered it is the Passion Flower. I tried to root it it but was unsuccessful. Years later I moved into the house I live in now. Much to my surprise a huge Passion Flower vine started growing in my backyard. I could not believe it. Because I am not happy unless I have a beaded needle case project going on, I decide to make this one next. I hope my Passion Flower vine returns this year. I look forward to seeing it again.
