I absolutely love my Orion necklace. The packaging was beautiful; I was reluctant to open it. The necklace is wonderfully crafted and delicate. Thank you Twinklebird for a fantastic piece of jewelry.
Twinklebird, handmade jewelry
After graduating at the Academy of Arts, I teached Arts for ten years at High School to children in the age of 12 - 18. It was fun and I had a very good time, but when in 2008 our daughter Alex was born, I felt the need for a change. When teaching there's not much time for creating yourself, and that's what I had missed.
During the last years from my teaching career, I decided to follow goldsmithing lessons and started to design and make my own jewelry. I'd liked working with all kinds of materials, but was curious were this would lead to...
After Alex was born I quit my job and started to think of starting my own small business. In 2010 I've launched Twinklebird with my own webshop.
And since then... it's going pretty well. I sell at Etsy, my own site www.twinklebird.com and at some real shops and pop-up stores in the Netherlands. The collection develops continuously and all jewelry are designed and made by me, with care...
I hope you enjoy!
