About

Hi everyone, welcome and thank you for visiting my shop!
My name is Anna. I am a graphic designer and an educational museum assistant. I love to make jewelry that is ethnically and historically inspired. Other cultures and history are just some of my interest fields.

In graphic design, I like straight lines, ordered lay-outs and 'less is more', but for jewelry, I prefer soft lines, not too perfect, and not too smooth & shiny materials!
That's why I also enjoy looking for original ethnic pieces and trade beads, especially from Africa and the Middle East. To wear something that has survived decades or even ages and has had so many previous owners, is very special.

However, I don't wear a lot of jewelry myself so that's why - now that my friends are well served - I sell most of my creations and collected things…

However, I don't wear a lot of jewelry myself so that's why - now that my friends are well served - I sell most of my creations and collected things. Besides, I think beads and jewelry must be passed through...
I will also sometimes list beads and materials from my supplies boxes and items I bought during travels in Africa, amongst them some nice fabrics. As a flamenco 'afficionada' I make earrings for flamenco friends, that I can sometimes list as well.

Feel free to have a look around and please read my shop policies. I have to write more about guarantee and restitution and so on.
For packaging, I don't want too waste too much, so I will often recycle material, but I will do my best to make it nice and solid. If you want your order gift-wrapped, tell me.
Please convo me for all other questions or more pictures when you want. Any doubt or problem can be resolved by good communication!

This is my first year on Etsy, I love it and I am still learning a lot. A sister shop, Studio Dessino, is planned for graphic work like digital patterns and maybe illustrations.
