Elena Samsonova's Profile

About

Hello! I'm Elena Samsonova aka Shimshoni. Welcome to my shop!
I was born, grew up, and studied in Moscow, Russia but now I live in USA. So I speak Russian, English, and know a little Hebrew and Yiddish as well. I've studied psychology and Judaic studies, worked at schools in Moscow and Brooklyn, NY as a child psychologist and a teacher, was a freelance translator. Now I'm a self taught handmade artist trying to turn my favorite hobby into life style and profession.
Warning: I'm especially crazy about all kind of beads. Wooden, stone, beaded, crocheted, staffed, engraved, made from wire or clay - whatever! I prefer to make them myself from polymer and metal clay. I love wire and clay, turquoise and amber, silver and copper.
