How colorful jewelry can bring color to life...
oBo Creations is a story about discovering hidden talent. I never studied to be a jewelry designer; I may have always liked contemporary design and colorful items, but I hardly envisioned sometime making it myself. I started crafting as a way to take my mind off of my day job, which can sometimes be overwhelming. My first creation was an Easter egg painted in bright colors, and I liked it so much that, while searching for other things to paint, I soon turned my attention to beads and jewelry.
I quickly became hooked. No matter how tiring my day job, I still spent endless hours after work searching online for shapes and components to create the design I had in mind, and then to paint them.
My signature style is bright vibrant colors of my jewelry. While it looks like enamel jewelry in fact i use very different process. My secret is special paint that creates a special effect on the surface when it dries. On big pieces it appears as magical honeycomb pattern with shades of color, on small pieces it creates amazing uneven tone as if it shimmers from within. I apply it by hand on each piece and then i add a thick dome of glaze that gives the color further dimension and 3-d illusion. One cannot get that with traditional enamel. A lot of people asked me if the final result is "glass" or "gemstones" actually.
There is so much more to oBo Creations then simply making the jewelry - i had to learn macro-photography, graphic design to create online banners and logos, scrap booking (to decorate my packaging), presentation at at creative exhibitions that i really enjoy doing etc, etc etc. So much to do with so little time! My husband helps me a lot. This whole enterprise would be impossible without his help and most importantly support and encouragement.
All in all discovering my passion for jewelry-making and starting oBo Creations has enormously enriched my life. I am very proud of what I have accomplished and that I do it in addition to being a lawyer. It is not easy to keep up this combination, but I am determined to make it work.
Please visit my website and blog www.obocreations.com to learn more how i manage to do it all!
A lawyer by profession (yes, no kidding!) who once discovered she can make jewelry and that it is absolutely fascinating. Spends her (hardly existing) free time painting and assembling these tiny pieces while keeping full-time legal job
The husband of a lawyer with a jewelry making hobby. When his wife got lost in her workshop and was coming out all covered in paint he encouraged her to open an Etsy shop. oBo shop owes him it's visual identity and marketing strategy.

Had to get used to the (horrible) smell of paint, and learned it hard way that eating beads does not end well. Still is eager to lie there and watch to jewelry magic coming true.

Additional policies and FAQs
- My jewelry comes in gift packaging - either a samll box or small flat endvelope depending on whether the item may be packed flat. It will come inside a bubble envelope. As of mid October i will use Christmas themed packaging. If you mind that let me know.
If you do not want packaging and prefer me to save the paper for environmental reasons - let me know.
While my jewelry is not particularly fragile or vulnerable it does require usual level of care as most of jewelry items to keep you happy long time: Make sure you keep it away from sunlight when storing, avoid too harsh tearing of chains. You do not need to take the ring off when you wash your hands.Yet never never leave the jewelry in the humid place. If the metal part gets yellowish or loose shimmer you can polish it with a polish cloth (e.g. Sunshine polish cloth that can easily be found on Etsy or elsewhere)
