On Etsy since 2009

Glass bead Fairies, elves and little folk.

In 2009 I followed a one day workshop in lampworking. Eventualy I started making beads to design my own jewelry. Next to that I made some guardian angels to sell at christmas fairs.

Marcel, my husband, started drawing and sculpting additional bead designs, among them where some cute fairies. I started making a couple and by 2011 we decided to go for a shop presenting fairies and other little folk alike (elves, gnomes, pixies and goblins) exclusively.

It really gives us great pleasure to create these little glass fantasy figurines. It is even a greater joy to see them travel to places far from the home they where made. We always like to hear when their arrived well. And the feedback and compliments are truly heartwarming!

We put much effort in the presentation. So Marcel often goes out to the forest, fields (or garden ;-)) to picture the fairies in the surroundings we feel they belong. By this we also hope to show you the beauty of natures littlest detail, even in the smallest patches of leaves or the tiniest twigs, stones and flowers.

We are grateful that you have come to visit our shop and enjoy the little glass folks!

    Working as a graphic designer and illustrator I also tend the Etsy shop 'Glass Bead Fairies' together with Iris. I like to draw additional designs for Iris and make displays/bases for the bead figurines and shooting photo's for the shop.
