Sylvia White's Profile

About

My name is Sylvia and I live with my family near Cologne, Germany.

My addiction to jewelry started in Summer 2005. At the time I wasn't interested in jewelry at all but was a gardening freak.

One day my gaze fell upon a bracelet a medical assistant of my doctor was wearing and I dared to ask where she got it from because I thought it looked gorgeous.

The lady was so kind to enlighten me. The shop where she bought it was luckily in the same town where I lived and an hour later I was the proud owner of a similar bracelet.

It bore a designer tag and me being known as Mrs. Google found out details about the designer plus that she uses Bali beads as components.

I had never heard about Bali beads before. Google let me to an importer of those beads. He was situated only 100 km from Cologne and even offered a jewelry course. Ten minutes later I had booked a place in his course.

After the course I was infected. I bought some materials and in a flash I had created 15 bracelets. The trouble was, that in the mornings I could never decide which one to wear.

Telling my friend about my "trouble" she offered to host a jewelry party at her home....and that is how it all really started....

First I did stringing, later on wire techniques like wire-wrapping, chainmailling, electro forming, etching, roll milling, fusing and lately soldering.
There are still lots of techniques I intend to conquer :)

My little studio is situated in the basement. It has got daylight, lots of space, peace and tranquility (and music I love).

Nowadays I sell my jewelry via the internet using several venues.

My name does of course originate from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. galadryl [!at] yahoo.de was my very first email address in 2000.
