Hi!

My name is Erika, and I am the creative soul behind TheStorytellingJeweller.com. Beading is my passion and I invite you to bead with me at Perlenkunstmesse Hamburg 2019 – the biggest fair dedicated to beads in Germany!

I will teach two classes, where you can choose from four different designs. I will also have a table full of kits and unique, hard to find beading material and a SURPRISE GIFT. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Bead, play, love 🙂

This layered cross with rich ornamentation is ‘rock and roll’ and super sweet at the same time.
Beware, you will at least temporarily hate me while the spiky Cubic Zirconia cabochon is slipping between your fingers! But during the workshop, you will secure it safely with Japanese seed beads and sparkly crystals. You will also learn how to make sure that the ‘wings’ of the Archangel, made of Swarovski pendants, are staying where they are supposed to be.
The main motif is complemented with sterling silver earring components adorned with a tiny, cute chaton, a glass cabochon of unusual shape and a baroque pendant – joined together with more glass beads and crystals.

After running a bead shop for six years I started to design beaded jewellery and write beading tutorials full time. I am a member of the Beadsmith Inspiration Squad. I love to play with colours and all the new bead shapes, but the my favourite thing is to see the happy faces of students after a workshop or a picture of a jewel made from one of my tutorials. I hope you will soon become one of them!

Indira bracelet tutorial

Over the years I have purchased several of Ms Sandors’ tutorials and each one was a delight to make. They always turn out beautiful. I look forward to making this one as it looks just as descriptive and easy to follow as her others do.

Nebula bracelet tutorial

Unfortunately I am unable to update my original rating so I am left to leave a new one. I allowed my email to become a mess and it took me two weeks to sort it out. I apologize for that. There was indeed an apology and a refund from Ms Sandor approximately one week after I notified her of the problem. As always her tutorials are beautiful, easy to follow, and as I am currently acquiring the beads for this bracelet and another tutorial by her, I look forward to making them.

Nebula bracelet tutorial

Dear Sharon! Thank you for your feedback and note. Erika has just returned from her holiday in Afrika which took place during the whole of October. She left her business with her backup team and we wrote you on 21.10. after reading your comment here. In the meantime, we also refunded you the Nebula bracelet tutorial 1x, as you asked for. Please accept our apologies, technical stuff can play games with us sometimes 🙂 We hope to welcome you among our customers again soon. Please send us some pictures of your bracelets, we are curious about your work! Sending you lots of positive creative energy! Very best regards!

Nebula bracelet tutorial

I purchased this tutorial on 10/14. I only purchased one tutorial, but when I received the receipt, I noticed I was charged for two tutorials. I immediately alerted Ms. Sandor through the contact page but have not heard back from her and it is now 10/17. This is unfortunate as I have purchased tutorials from her in the past and truly enjoy them. I will update my review when I hear from her.

Star Anise pendant tutorial
