I was born in a sunny region of Germany in 1973 and grew up in Bruehl by the river Rhein close to Heidelberg. The town was originally established as a fisher town 850 years ago. Today Bruehl is a lively little town filled with beautiful old buildings and surrounded by nature in every direction. It was a great place to grow up and filled my mind with creative thoughts.
“If the sun does not shine – I paint myself one and if the flowers don’t bloom -I paint myself some”
Due to a family decision I was sent to spend 6 months in Chicago to polish and enhance my English proficiency. What a great challenge! I’ve been here ever since, and Chicago has become my second home.
The craft of jewelry making was brought to me in 2000 through a dear friend who showed me how to use pliers and jewelry wire. I was fascinated and intrigued and knew I had to learn and master this craft.
I love to create jewelry out of glass beads/pendants, corals, stone, and whatever I can find to turn into a unique necklace, bracelet or earrings. Since that day back then I’ve been mesmerized by these little colorful beads and developed my own unmistakable style over the years.
Due to my love to glass beads/pendants my interest in making my own beads/pendants grew stronger. I gathered information and books on this flaming subject for 2 months. Then in May 2008 my fiancé and I took a Lampworking class and after that I went out to get us the needed materials to start our new hobby right away.
I hope all my visitors will be enchanted by the verity of colors and shapes of my Jewelry and beads as much as I.
