I LOVE creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind & limited edition, high quality, hand crafted items, while paying careful attention to detail, materials, and craftsmanship. My hope is that you enjoy my handmade jewelry as much as I enjoy creating it for you!

MY BIRTHPLACE is Sweden. I'm a self employed jewelry designer and bead artist with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design & Packaging. Having grown up in an artist family in Sweden, I came to the US in the 80's 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. 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 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 and health in my own life."

When I found the quote I'm using in my shop banner, it spoke to me: "Be Yourself. The World Worships The Original." Words to live by and to gain inspiration from! Not only did the Swedish 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...
