I have always loved unique and unusual jewelry and trips to the jewelry shops and boutiques were always dissapointing. I didn't like the things I could afford and couldn't afford the things I liked.
Growing up in a post-communist Poland has taught me that if I want to have something unique I have to make it myself. There were no bead shops, so the only way to go was to use beads from broken necklaces and bracelets, ribbons cut off from old garments, odd buttons found here and there and shells or tiny Baltic Amber nuggets found on the beach (the Baltic sea leaves pieces of amber on the beach during a storm).
And so my journey into jewelry making began and it still continues, although I don't make a lot of it. Just enough for myself and a few extra pieces to sell.
Why a supplies shop then and not a jewelry shop?…
