“Kumusta?” (How are you?) My name is Strozzi Abecel P. Rosende. I am into paintings, arts and crafts, graphic arts, floral arrangements and interior decorating.

I hail particularly from the island of Cebu where I live with my parents, and my pets. I am the proud owner of four cats, five dogs.

I graduated from the University of San Carlos where I got the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design. While I started working as a freelance designer for a number of years, I stopped when I realized that I loved crafting more. So, I took every kind of art class being offered and tried all fields of arts and crafts from fashion designing to sewing, from sculpting to painting and even joined painting exhibits.

“Kumusta?” (How are you?) My name is Strozzi Abecel P. Rosende. I am into paintings, arts and crafts, graphic arts, floral arrangements and interior decorating. I was born and raised in the Philippines and has lived in this beautiful country for the whole 36 years of my life. I hail particularly from the island of Cebu where I live with my parents, and my pets. I am the proud owner of four cats, five dogs.

I graduated from the University of San Carlos where I got the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design. While I started working as a freelance designer for a number of years, I stopped when I realized that I loved crafting more. So, I took every kind of art class being offered and tried all fields of arts and crafts from fashion designing to sewing, from sculpting to painting and even joined painting exhibits. I also did my share of wedding coordinating, decorating, flower arranging and furniture designing. I even into photography too. While I learned a lot and got to enjoy all of these fields, I felt more at home and happier with making jewelry. I got to deepen and broaden my skills in jewelry making when I took an extensive short course in Metal Workshop under the tutelage of German metal artist Ingrid Haufe.

I never thought that I would venture into the world of arts. When I was a kid, I dreamed of becoming a nurse because my mom used to work as a nursing aid at a hospital. I was the kind of girl who liked to play alone when I was kid, because I was very shy. Because of this, I was able to spend more time with my pet cat and my cooking sets. When I got bored with my colorful toys, I drew and made paper dolls. I also made paper dresses for my dolls, which I sprinkled with silver dust. I also sculpted furniture for my paper dolls using mud, bamboo sticks and dried leaves. I guess this was when my artistic capabilities were born.

Right now, I am quite busy but having fun in spending my time making the orders of my buyers. I still do a lot of experimenting when it comes to developing new designs as well as in making other lines of craft. Despite my busy schedule, I still take time to play with my five cats, which I love dearly. During my breaks, I also go to ukay-ukay (surplus) shops, watch TV, attend fellowship gatherings and visit old historical places. I also go out with friends and cousins and do some partying with uncles and aunties.

This is me in a nutshell. I create jewelry to please not only people who love unique and handcrafted creations, but also myself because each item I make is like an extension of my person and comes from me to you with so much love....
