MY BIRTHPLACE is Sweden. I'm a self employed jewelry designer with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design & Packaging. Having grown up in an artist family in Sweden, I came to the US quite some time ago to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After graduation, I met my husband on a serendipitous blind date. We moved to San Diego, got married, and I founded Sirious Design. I designed and produced independent print, brand, and web design for 20+ years, and after one of my graphics customers introduced me to beading and jewelry making, I fell completely in love with it. When not designing websites or logos, I found myself pouring over my beads and my collection of handcrafted jewelry grew rapidly.

Suddenly, I was attracting customers looking for unusual and original jewelry, and after selling more than 100 pieces of my handcrafted items in a six hour time frame at a private party, I decided it was time to change my career. I now continue to update my design, fashion, and jewelry making skills by taking classes and by working out of my studio in one of San Diego's beach communities.

My skills have expanded to traditional silver smithing and jewelry fabrication. Coming soon, I'll be featuring an additional jewelry shop where I'll be listing my #notsoordinary hand crafted sterling silver bracelets, sterling silver and precious stone rings, sterling silver pendants and sterling silver earrings. I'll also feature items from my kuem-boo technique 24K gold and 0.925 silver line.

Creating things is as important to me as breathing, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work with interesting people all over the world to create fashionable and wearable pieces of jewelry they will cherish for years to come.

MY JEWELRY PIECES are inspired by what inspires me in life; people, the arts, architecture, design, fashion, fitness, nature, history, music, technology, travel, and unconventional thinking.

MY MISSION is "to use my creative skills to offer beauty and joy to others, while maintaining balance, prosperity, and health in my own life."

I have a favorite quote that speaks to me: "Be Yourself. Because The World Worships The Original." Words to live by and to be inspired by! Not only did a fellow Swedish born woman and famous actress Ingrid Bergman coin it, but as I would humbly add, whether you're here as a seller or as a buyer, it expresses the very spirit of the Etsy community...
