FAQ

Where do you get these vintage beads and crystals?
- All over the place! And that what makes treasure hunt so fascinating! I have crystals that were made in Austria, shipped to US jewellery makers in the 1930-50 and then sold on auctions now, so they traveled back to Europe. Beads and crystals are mostly European origin (Czechoslovakia of course, Austria, France and Germany) but I also got my hands on some very special handmade glass beads from 1950's Japan.

How much time does it take to make your jewellery?
rhinestone jewelry crystal brooch fashion accessories
- It varies on item to item. But for example this brooch took me 3 hours of intensive work. This is only the making of this brooch - the design process is lot longer for many technical issues must be resolved and of-course the aesthetics (the color combination, textures and the whole balance of the item). Now if I would add the preparation time when I set up all the right beads, rhinestones and compatible settings and the time I put everything back into their right packages in their right drawer in the right cabinet... Oh well, lets stick to the 3 hours, shall we?

Where did you learn to make jewellery?
- I'm 100% self-educated. The wanting to create was the fuel and my family and friends were my support. All the rest is hard work.
