Red Panda Beads is owned by me, Betsy Ramsey. I am a beader turned online bead store owner. I've never quit beading and designing, however the designing has slowed quite a bit with the daily tasks of running an online bead store. I've been in business since 2007 and I started out 2012 with a project I called "2012 - The Year of the Bracelet". I intended to create an original bracelet design inspired by each months birthstone. Each design was videotaped and can be seen on my YouTube channel. Each design also has a corresponding kit available on the Red Panda Beads website.
By July, it was apparent that I could not keep up with the monthly designs. The final design featured Gold Marbled Ruby CzechMates Tile beads and Galvanized Duracoat Miyuki Berry Beads.
Because I liked this design so much, and there were so many colors available in the CzechMates tiles, and because there aren't a lot of CzechMates Tile patterns that I like, I named this design Berrylicious and there are now 15 colorways available in the Gallery of Color Suggestions
