I am a fashion designer by occupation.
I enjoy many different techniques of jewelry-making, but mostly bead embroidery. I use in my work seed beads, gemstones, Swarovski crystal and Czech beads, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, gold-filled materials.
I wouldn't tell anything can inspire me for jewelry-making. Ideas for my designs come into my mind all the time by themselves. Sometimes it looks like jewelry makes itself and just uses me for making it. )))
Everybody in my family enjoys needlework as a hobby. I was 4 when I first starting knitting. All my life I enjoy making something with my hands - knitting, crochet, fabric burning, jewelry-making.
