About

A city girl here from a tiny nation (Latvians) at the Baltic sea.

I have always been busy creating with every material I got in my hands. Even better, if it becomes something one can wear and express his/her uniqueness. It started with knitting my mom taught me before teaching me to read. Since then, I've tried loads of different techniques and materials and still love every challenge of learning something new.

I see it as my mission to search for, to create, give and sell beautiful, mostly organic and wearable, things to help others to express themselves.

Formally educated as a German teacher and translator, I had my career as such, but it crashed with the wold's economy. I still do translations, when I get any, as I can't live with my two younger children from only selling my finds and creations…

Formally educated as a German teacher and translator, I had my career as such, but it crashed with the wold's economy. I still do translations, when I get any, as I can't live with my two younger children from only selling my finds and creations for now and I like to translate and help people to understand each other. And I teach crafts and share my experience of selling my creations on-line to children and adults, whenever there is somebody willing to learn. :)

I'm excited about Etsy and the truly international and loving community here! My first on-line shop was opened 2 years ago. For now, there are 3 of them, but I'm closing the ceramics shop, as every day on this planet has got only 24 hours and that makes us set priorities. :(

As I don't believe in coincidences, there has to be some reason for you stopping by in my corner. Let's find out what it is this time!
