This is what I can do for you if you are…

Before you continue to browse the portfolio or the beadwork tutorials, I would like to tell you something. The thing is, that I have been there before. I know that all the different bead shapes, the codes for the components and the color combinations can seem intimidating at the beginning. You may even have doubts if you can do it. I assure you that you can.

Let me tell you about the evolution of the color combos I’ve been using to prove it. At the beginning (when I couldn’t imagine I will ever be able to come up with my own designs) I used a lot of black. And well, not so much more. All the jewels were black and red, black and green, black and blue. I just couldn’t recognize all the possibilities and was afraid to experiment.

Than slowly, I started to combine three colors in one jewel. For example black, blue and green. Or black, red and purple. However, I could not get rid of the black. It felt like a burden, and I was very unhappy with it. But finally, when I stopped to push myself so heavily, somehow it happened, and I didn’t even notice. I started to make vibrant, colorful pieces. It wasn’t easy to continue when I was so unhappy with my work, but I think the reward felt even better because the journey was hard.

Now, you can have me. We can meet if you live nearby or your local bead shop invites me to teach, but that’s far from all! I have a one-to-one approach even if you live thousands of kms from me and I will do my best to encourage you on your creative journey.

I would like to make professional beadwork easy for you.

To begin, you can download my free jewelry making tutorials.

You will get them one by one directly into your inbox, and yes, you can use them from now until the end of time. I will add new patterns from time to time, and you will receive them, too, if you decide to stay close.

In the contrary to payed tutorials which are intended for your eyes only, you can share the free ones with your friends, too, and have fun together.

I help you to find the project you are looking for.

Trying out seemingly more complicated pieces helps you to learn and grow, and I have a wide selection of those, too. To make it easier to choose you can browse them by categories like beaded beads, bracelets, brooches, earrings, necklaces and pendants, rings and sets.

But that’s far from all. Nowadays there is an abundance of bead shapes out on the market. 2-hole ones, 3-hole ones, 4-hole ones. Circles, triangles, squares and not so easily describable, undefined objects. And I’m sure that it happens to you, too, that while visiting your local bead shop, you can’t resist that intriguing new type or eye-catching, vibrant color, and put the beads into your basket even if you don’t have an idea how the heck will you use them, if ever.

Now I would like to help you use more of those shiny treasures already in your bead box, so you can browse the patterns according to the beads used in them. For example you have some Honeycomb beads you would like to use finally, than you just click on the tag on the left side, and all the projects using this type of bead appear.

If you would like to try a new color combinations…

Since I overcame my unwanted cling to black I love to use colors! Moods, thoughts and even characters can be turned into color combinations. That’s probably the part of the process of playing with beads which I like probably the most. And to share my obsession with turquoise, avocado green, tangerine, mellow yellow, red, silver, gold (and many more) with you, I started to created colorful inspiration boards for beaders.

You can check them out here.

I can help you to find the beads and components to complete your project.

Beading time is precious. And while browsing the selection of your favorite bead shop and in the meanwhile meeting like-minded people is definitely one of the best things in life, sometimes you just feel an urge start to work on your project as soon as possible.

To help you control this intense, strong urge (and protect your family members from your impatience) I put together kits, which contain everything to complete the project, you will only need to add thread and needle, and also listed the trickier components separately here.

P.S.: In case if the material or the kit which you would like to get your hands on is not currently listed, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line. I will do my best and offer you my personal stash if I happen to have the bead of your dream.

Are you in need of some inspiration and a bit of a push to continue?

You can be the hardest working little beader out there in the great wide world, but sometimes days can feel a bit gloomy and the muse just doesn’t seem to kick. Understandebly, he / she also needs a day off sometimes. That’s a perfect moment to recharge your batteries. Put aside your beads for a day or two (they won’t get offended, I promise), and take a walk in the nature. Shoot some pics, pet some dogs, pick a flower. Or you can read some inspirational quotes on creativity to see that all the big minds get bored / tired / exhausted sometimes.

And the best thing now for the really determined ones who’ve read ’till the end: I would like to write about you, beader.

As you may know, I regularly publish articles about beadwork designers on my page. Recently a friendly beader suggested me to write not only about professionals, but about everybody out there, and I really like the idea.

If you like the concept and would like to be featured, please hit the message button on the left to get in touch with me today!

There will be a bit of work with it on your side, too, as you will need to answer 12 questions. They are fun, but it will definitely take some time. I will also need some good quality pictures about you and your jewelry. You can also show us the place where you create and your favorite bead shop, if you want to.

And the best part: there’s a reward waiting for you!
After the article is prepared, you will get a 10 EUR worth coupon code for my store. How does it sound?

I am looking forward to get to know you better.
