All NEW Bead Rubberstamps and Seed Beading Kits!!!
Lampwork Beads from some of Penny's Favorite Artists

Customers always ask me where I get my beads. In fact, many times I send out an order for Critters or Findings only to have people write back and ask about a bead they saw on my website or at a show. I have made a LOT of bead jewelry and spend as much time as I can searching shows and the internet for beads with a special flair. Browse this page for a selection of beads that I have used in a number of Bead Critter and Bead Charmer designs. Examples where I have used the beads are included as well as some tips and some stories about the artists themselves. Some of my favorite people are lampworkers!

All the Beads available for my Bead Critters and Fun Findings are now available in one location...visit them HERE!

This page is part of Penny's Bead Artists Collection. Be sure to see them all.

Dee Howl
Dee Howl and his wife, Karen are beadmakers from New Mexico. They are the only beadmakers I know who perform surface-etching on their beads in this fashion. They are fabulous beads that each seem to be a tiny gazing ball. They are available with either the STARS or HEARTS (not shown) pattern. These beads average 9mm high by 12mm wide. They fit almost all of the critters since we use one of these beads as a standard when carving new designs in wax. They are exceptionally fun on the bat, owl, dragon and teapot and the heart design is sweet on the bunny and love teapot.

Susan Simonds
Susan lives in Colorado with her husband Jim. She and her 5 year old Rottie, Katie, have been making beads since 1992. They enjoy traveling in their motorhome, and you can find them at many of the Bead Rennaissance shows. Susan also has many of my findings available if you see her at a show and obviously, her lovely beads which are always so perfectly executed!! These beads average 9mm high by 12mm wide. They look GREAT on the classic and Love teapots as well as Neptuna, the hippo, frog and many more.

Beading Heart Finding

Sample Lavender Beaded Heart with Baroque Pearl Wings  Beading Heart Seed Beading Finding  Beading Heart Finished Sample Piece

I have always wanted to make a sterling silver finding for seed beaders and am very happy with how this first design turned out. The sample piece shown is my first effort and was so fun to make! Holes are spaced along the heart "chambers" and at the top and bottom which facilitates lots of seed beading and easy incorporation into a larger design. Seed beading is so very popular and some of the pieces are amazingly intricate. I look forward to seeing what the imaginations of other seed beaders will produce with my fun new finding! Enjoy...
Measures 35mm wide x 30mm tall.

Wonderful artwork by Kimmie of JustK beads. These are mounted on wood while only the images are shown below.

If I left my pups alone in the studio, I'm sure they would have lots of fun with all my beads!!


Boy, is this statement ever true...I wish I had half the time needed to complete all my beading projects!!


The magic never ends with beads, whether you have "little blue ones" or not!!!


Inspired by my Monkey bead critter design, this little gal has adorned her tail with some fabulous lampwork!!!


Here are three of my addictions!!! Come on now...I know I'm not the only one!


Another tribute to the beading addiction...A little tube of seed beads can be more therapeutic than any perscription medication!!!
