Lisia BeadsnBones' Profile

About

At a very early age I discovered my passion for history, art and folklore - and it never went away. I started drawing and making things as a very little girl, collecting stones, sticks, shells and leaves on travels with my parents. As an Art and History student I found out that the other grown-ups use most of their time explaining why they do something and loose their ideas in the process. I just make stuff, and I like making them.

I am 35 now, and still travelling, collecting and growing up. A few years ago I moved from the Netherlands to Austria, from the North Sea to the Alps.

The idea behind all my pieces is very simple: earthy, trans-tribal and durable.
I try to make pieces you can wear at the library, to an archeology dig and to that unexpected gallery opening party. Wear them with your old jeans or a silk dress.
My jewelry is not very fragile - neither are you - I want you to be able to throw a necklace on and run to catch the Trans Siberian Express. Wear a bracelet, walk through the desert and discover a lost civilisation. Or read a book.

Let's make this world a better, handmade, place for us all!
namaste, Lisia
