Welcome to our shop!
My mission is to help people to emphasize their own individuality, to find or develop their own unique style, to create an image that will become the business card of a person. It's no secret that everyone dreams about their own image, but only a few have it. In a world where everything is measured in money, a desire for mass reproduction has arisen. Human behavior tends to patterns, his thinking - to stereotypes, because of which it becomes difficult to stand out, it is difficult to differ from the others. But I want to help people remain unique, I want to help identify the image as one of a kind. With my work I want to remind people that uniqueness, originality is the most valuable, from everything that can be in nature.
All the things you can find here are carefully made by hand.
I'm fall in love with handmade. All the things I do with a lot of love and hope that buyers will feel coming from them positive.

PRODUCT QUALITY
I really care about the quality of the materials from which I make jewelry. Basically I work with Czech beads. If in work I have to use beads, I try to give preference only to those who have a quality coating that does not suffer from scratches.

For the manufacture of the basics of necklaces and bracelets I use a thin solid fishing line of a Japanese manufacturer. She showed strength and durability in the products, although, of course, nothing lasts forever in this world, we do not need to discard this fact.

For the manufacture of soft and plastic parts, such as fringe in earrings and necklaces, I use synthetic threads of European and Ukrainian quality, designed specifically for beaded jewelry. Recently, I try to give preference to kapron threads of Ukrainian production, which are stronger than European ones, so the price for products can fluctuate slightly.

For beaded articles I use acrylic felt intended for needlework. I embroider it with beads using a thin transparent monofilament, similar to a fishing line. Each bead is sewn fully by hand, one piece with two stitches to the felt pattern. It is very slow and hard manual labor. Embroidered with beaded jewelry I sew on a leather base, carved according to the template of the product. For sewing a piece of skin I use a special seam with beads. That the product does not exfoliate, before sewing the layers of leather and felt glue transparent glue of Russian quality, which has proved itself in handmade products. Often to seal the structure, I use a layer of cardboard, which I lay between layers of felt and leather. Thus, the longevity of the article rises. I paint faces of dolls manually with waterproof acrylic paints, designed for painting on fabric and canvas. To apply blush to the doll brooch, I use an artistic dry pastel.

To make dolls, wallets and cosmetic bags I try to use a fabric with a cheerful coloring, but first of all I prefer American cotton for patchwork, which does not give a big shrinkage and keeps the color of the fabric after repeated washing. But I also sometimes use cotton of German origin, Ukrainian and Belorussian flax, Turkish and Korean cotton.

I constantly select suppliers, trying to choose the most reliable ones, so that at every convenient opportunity I can increase the quality and durability of my products.

MY WORK ENVIRONMENT
I work in a one-room apartment where we live together with my husband. There are no smoking residents in the house, but there are pets - a couple of wavy parrots that have living with us for 10 years. They are very happy that they have found each other, and we provide them with all the conditions, so that their mutual feelings are saved for the whole life, we provide them with a variety of food and in due time we provide a bath with pleasant water, where they adore swimming. Every morning I clean and wash their cage, this also determines the cleanliness in my kitchen. And only then do I make coffee. A hot summer day they spend time in a cage on the balcony. We could not give birth to children, that's why we give all our love to our parrots with the hope that in the future they will meet us on the threshold of Paradise :-)

I work in the room. Since there is not much room, my husband made me a folding portable table that can be folded and hidden under the bed when the holiday comes, and we need to free the area. My husband also has his own workplace, this is a small desk with a computer and a comfortable armchair in the corner of the room, near the window. I work with a laptop, I have everything portable and mobile, it's easy to clean, it's easy to fold and unfold :-)

To store my products, I use a closet furniture cabinet and cardboard boxes, neatly fold the necklace, dolls to protect them from dust and sunlight, and hide them on the shelves in the cupboard. In another section of the cabinet with numerous shelves, I save consumables. I like to sort out my products and materials, often it helps to keep everything in order.

All pieces are created by hand, so many times no two items are exactly identical. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the listing photos. Not all of my items are one-of-a-kind. One-of-a-kind designs will be marked OOAK.

WHY ARE THE PRICES OF MY PRODUCTS GROWING?
The first products I try to sell at a wholesale price, to get their feedback and attract buyers. In the future, my strategy is aimed at raising prices, but to former buyers, I make an unlimited discount of 20%. My professional skill is gradually growing, I'm increasingly investing in teaching the art of commerce, to pay for it, I need to raise the price. So do everything in the world, all corporations, all organizations. With the growth of my own qualification, I strive to improve the quality of products, use better materials (and they are usually more expensive). Also I am sure that I will continue to raise prices, but not for the sake of not starving, but to develop my business and surpass the quality and beauty of competitors' products, which I am now focusing on. Therefore, the prices for products in my store can in time be increased by 50% or more. Nothing limits prices, because there is no limit to perfection. And because I also want to improve in my business, develop and feel growth.

Thanks for visiting!
