About

The move across the big pond and trying to make my passion a reality.

Well, I guess it all starts back when I was little. I have always had an admiration for things that sparkle, especially glass beads.
I started making necklaces and bracelets when I was very little. Not that the jewelry I produced when I was 10 was exactly high fashion, but my mom always supported me and let me believe that my creations were amazing. Thanks mom!!!

A couple of years ago I saw a documentary on TV about a glass bead artist and I instantly knew I had to learn the old craft of glass bead making.
I searched for a class I could take anywhere close to where I was, I signed up and I was ready to go. When I showed up the day of my class I was baffled, the lady I had seen on TV making these beautiful beads was going to be my instructor!!! Wow, it was meant to be.

Since then I have been practicing a lot, spending hours, weekends, day and night at my torch trying to make beautiful beads. I have been creating my little pieces of art for about 8 years now and still love making them.
I am always looking for new jewelry making techniques and a new challenge. This is why you can also find some chainmaille and gemstone jewelry in my shop.

I used to showcase my work at the wonderful Christmas markets in Germany, then a couple of years ago I met this amazing Canadian guy whom I ended up marrying and I moved to Canada. This is also where I met my friend and co-shop owner Sandra. We instantly clicked and decided to go on this journey together.

So now here we are, with our little etsy shop trying to make it big from the capital of Canada!!!
