I love this little figuring, such an imaginative and detailed interpretation of a Native American costume. Iris manages to outdo herself with each new design. I just can't wait for the next.

About

Glass bead Fairies, elves and little folk.

In 2009 I followed a course in beadmaking. Eventualy starting out with simple beads to design my own jewelry. On the side I made some guardian angels for christmas fairs.

Marcel, my husband started drawing additional bead designs, among them where some cute fairies. I started making a couple and knew this was more then just a try. In 2011 we decided to go for a shop presenting fairies and other little folk alike (elves, gnomes, pixies and goblins) exclusively. Later the guardians, inspired by mamals and beetles (Marcel's big hobby) followed.

It really gives me 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 ;-)) near our home. This to capture the fairies in the surroundings we feel they belong. By this we also hope to help show the beauty of natures 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!
