Vicky's Profile

About

Hi, I'm Vicky. After five years of studies and a couple of degrees in Computer Science, Networking and Telecommunications, I decided that line of work was not meant for me. No way I could limit myself to an office job. I had to set myself free.

I've always had a thing for romance and fantasy. I like period costumes, novels, movies, patterns, images, you name it.

In 2011 I started attending a jewelry making class which mostly focuses on the Lost Wax technique and metalworking. This has greatly altered my view of jewelry (among other things) and I have incorporated my newly acquired knowledge in my work in a constant effort to improve my products. For example I have almost eliminated the use of adhesives which most of us costume jewelry makers depend upon. I believe this greatly increases the value of my designs.

Sooner or later I will start selling entirely handmade artisan jewelry :)

Thanks for visiting and reading all this!
