How did you get interested in beading / jewelry making?
I started beading about 10 years ago. First I made flowers out of beads, which looked very similar to natural plants. Then there was a break in my beadwork, but I went back to my hobby soon after. However, I did not make flowers anymore, but instead began to study the creation of jewelry. On my own, I am independently studying various techniques of beading. And now you see what I can do. The main thing in my jewelry - accuracy.
What are your favorite materials to use in jewelry making?
In creating jewelry, I love to use only the highest quality materials. Such as: Czech beads, Japanese seed beads, Toho, and Miyuki. But my favorite materials include: Miyuki Delica beads and Rivolis. To my regret, these are the most expensive materials for me.
Who or what inspires your creative process?
Thanks to the Internet, I have a unique opportunity to meet and communicate with the great masters of beadwork. Enjoy their work and continue to learn. Also, you can draw inspiration from nature. I like to make necklaces of flowers: poppies, roses or fancy flowers.
