Design/Expertise-related information

What technique(s) are you particularly focusing on?
Wirework; stitching

Since when have you already been holding workshops?

What fascinates you about using Swarovski crystals?
Such a huge variety of shapes and colors – every SWAROVSKI ELEMENT inspires creativity.

What is your favorite Swarovski crystal color?
Ruby (501), but I also like Light Colorado Topaz AB (246 AB) and now Crystal Antique Pink (001 ANTP) is quickly becoming a favorite too ... I really love so many of them!

What is your favorite Swarovski crystal and why?
My favorite shape is likely the Cubist Bead art. 5650, but the XILION Bead art. 5328 is just so versatile – a staple in the majority of my designs.

What is your favorite design you have ever created with Swarovski crystals?
Likely a recent necklace I made – using my beloved Cubist Beads of course – some large-holed Briolettes and Xilion 5328s. I’m keeping that one for myself!

Personal information

What are your hobbies?
Jewellery making and design and, of course, my dogs. We foster rescue dogs in our home and volunteer for various tasks required to help homeless dogs find forever homes. I’m very proud to say that in the past 2 years, we have helped 24 dogs get a second chance for life.

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Compassionate, enthusiastic, sincere

What would you definitely take with you on a lonely island?
As many beads as I could carry, a solar operated task lamp, a bead mat, and one of my dogs!

What is the first thing at the day you usually do?
Feed my mini dog pack.

What is your motto of life?
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you handle it.

Try everything and never stop learning; you never know it all!
