Some paper beads begin life as long thin strips of paper cut from a newspaper. But that’s just the beginning. Putting together such a coordinated bead assortment takes a couple of weeks time.

Just like Snowflakes... each one special like none other!❄️

Hello everyone and welcome to my Etsy Shop! 🤗

I have been making “things” for as long as I can remember myself. Drawing, stitching, knitting, collaging, were my favourite past times as a child... and still are!

I get the biggest joy from the process of making. It starts off the moment I come up with the idea to make an item, to solving all the technical problems, choosing the right materials and finally to the creative making hours. There is so much mental and physical energy involved in each step that when I hold the final piece in my hands I feel that the purpose of the project is fulfilled. I am then ready to start all over again and make something which I have not made before and go through the whole process once more, facing new challenges.

Therefore, all the things I make, are always One-Of-A-Kind. They are fully handmade, without striving for total perfection but rather respectfully enjoying the limitations of materials and handwork. Usually my work is very tangible with a great juxtaposition of textures and materials. At the same time each item celebrates and evokes positive intangible elements such as fun, optimism, and contemplation.

The journey of creativity has no boundaries.
Through my work, I wish to be able to reach from my little spot in the world to yours.
Lets enjoy the ride together!
