I was born and raised in beautiful Sweden, with the sea and forests just around the corner. Where children still played outside instead of playing video games... A childhood that encouraged you to use your imagination and creativity. With an artist mother I was consistently exposed to design, art, the joy of making things but I also learned that being talented doesn't always bring food to the table... My mother also taught me to never give up on my dreams.. so here I am!

I work chiffon, silk, organza, lace and more. Vintage and/or new. The amazing flowers, leaves, colors and shapes in nature inspire me and is always present in my work.
All my flowers and embellishments are made with new or reclaimed fabrics. Each petals is carefully hand singed before…

All my flowers and embellishments are made with new or reclaimed fabrics. Each petals is carefully hand singed before stitched securely together. I sometimes use vintage pieces to add a little extra sparkle to a flower but I often hand make my own little flower centers by creating fabric buttons and embellishing them with rhinestones or faux pearls. When you use vintage pieces it can be hard to tell if it's gold or brass! But I always try to describe the material I've used as accurate as possible. If your flower has a center made of real freshwater pearls you will know!

If you have any questions or maybe just want to say hi, feel free to send me a "conversation" through Etsy!
