Hello Everyone.  I joined this site because my mother in law passed away very suddenly  and she had been making and collecting beading materials for over 20 years. I myself have no patience for the craft but I can not imagine throwing away the treasures she loved and worked so long to collect. Please forgive me for posting this on a site that tells people how to make creations but it is to hard for me to look at the items every day. I have thousands of beads and materials that I am trying to sell or give  to someone who will love these items and put them to good use. I have seed, glass and a lot of other beads, wires, clasps, tools  etc... She tried to teach me the craft but I have very limited knowledge except for the names of the items, There are well over 10,000 different beads and items  If you are interested please respond to the thread  and I will send pictures . Again this is not to disrespect or trick anyone I simply do not wish to just throw away something that she loved so much. Please only respond If you want to use the materials to make Jewelry or other crafts . I do not want the items thrown away

I am interested as I love making jewelry but the supplies at the stores I can choose from are a bit expensive for my budget.

My website is www.purepeacedesigns.com and as you can see I actively make jewelry and crafts and Im trying to sell them.

I would be pay shipping charges for all or part of the supplies or whatever you need me to do.  Im so sorry your mother in law passed and I am sorry you are sad when you look at the supplies.

I would not throw them away as I could really use them and need more supplies and beads and I would put them to great use.

Payment can be sent and I can do whatever you need to get them.

My email is kmillet10@gmail.com.

You can email me there for more discussion as I am really interested.

Truly sorry for your loss and I would be happy to have the supplies so that they wont be wasted and I would definitely start using them right away because I am trying to start up my handmade jewelry and art business and I have lots of time to devote to crafting.

Thanks,

Kaitlyn

I am so very sorry for your loss.  I cannot begin to imagine the pain you must be suffering, and I am so very sorry that something that brought your mother-in-law such joy now only brings you such sorrow. 

I have been a beader for several years and am working to get my business established.  If I could be of assistance taking some of these things off your hands, you would be doing me a great favor as well.

You may email me at boutiquev.com, where we can discuss this in more detail.  Again, I am so very sorry for your loss.

Hello, just read your post, this is a good thing you are doing in reaching out to others, I'm sure your mother-inlaw would be tickled to know  something she was passionate about will continue through others.

I had open heart surgery to remove a tumor from my mitral valve 8 months ago and have been off work healing. I started making jewelry as a way to keep my mind active and stay busy. I too would be interested in purchasing some of your items. You can email me at anmak1@hotmail.com I would be interested in seeing pictures.  Thanks Margaret

Hello! Im very sorry for your loss. There are never enough words to say in this type of situation. I have just recently started beading because it is a stress relief for me. I am disabled with fibromyalgia but found beading to be a great distraction for my pain instead of taking medication. With me not working it is hard on my husband and I's budget but he lets me buy things when we can afford it. 

I would greatly appreciate the beads and would love to make them into great treasures to enjoy. My email is mm.shields@yahoo.com and this is my flickr that shows some of the projects I have worked on. http://www.flickr.com/photos/44419860@N08/

Sincerely

Michelle

If you wish to donate some of the items to as good cause, check with your local hospitals and rehab centers. Many times they can use the items to help the people they work with.

I have an address of a clinical specialist in metal health occupational therapy. She came into the store where I work (a bead store) and told me she was always in need of donations to help her clients. If you are interested please send me an e-mail through this site and I will forward her address to you. I am sure she will put the beads and items to good use, and it your mother in law would be sharing her love of beading to those that my need it the most.

 

Happy Beading!!

Temp I would suggest they not put an email address on this site. It is just too public with over five hundred thousand members. If they want you to send them an email they can say so, then all you have to do is click on their avatar and then in the new screen you will see where it says send e-mail. This is the safest way so that no one has the address, and they can decide if they car to respond to your e-mail. I myself am not interested in your items, I already have move stockpiled than what I could use up in the rest of my life. 

Happy Beading!!
