And I didn't know I had this ability in me- to create something material.

Until one day...I decided to repair all my broken jewelry...
And I was "hooked".
I discovered the world of findings, connectors, learned about bead shapes and sizes. I learned bead weaving and studied for hours to master some other skills.
I felt so happy repairing all those necklaces, I was singing while stringing.
I fell in love with beads and beading.
The word of my repairing "talent"spread - and soon I started fixing jewelry for my friends- and I created new designs.

Each piece is the fruit of the long process of thinking over different combinations and drawing designs.It's a part of my personality.
All my jewelry is handmade by me.

The name of my shop is Lyris Gems- the blend of my daughters' names- Liza and Iris.They support and inspire me, and give me valuable advice.
