OMG!! Such a beautiful motivation, as well! *Swoon*

"Gone Fishing by fairyfrog embodies the concept of "seeing the world in a grain of sand".

There's a veritable seascape and a big dream of catching the ultimate prize... all contained in a beautifully made bead that fits the palm of your hand. Beautiful!

THANK YOU so much! Awh! Oh! Wow.. I just.. Awh! Squeeee!!!!
*Happy Dance*

Glass, jewelry metalcraft and music are my great passions in life!
I do not only want a piece of jewelry to be an item but part of a statement, expression, memory or identity. A magical, personal piece of history; a hidden gem; a fairytale and memory in a mundane world.

I believe that nothing material follow us in life for so long as a loved piece of jewelry. Many keep their tattered childhood pieces and pass them along to their own children, or re-forge them into more adult jewelry to be a part of their life still. Even in death, some wish to keep their beloved pieces on to be buried with, the most common example being the wedding ring.

Jewelry is important. It is a finely tuned system of social codes, and that very jewelry language is what I love to play with and try to find the right expression and convey emotions!
To take a material and make a transformation from a mere thing to a wearable piece of durable art. A found rock, a salvaged old ring, a childs' first tooth, a loved ones' lock of hair, a piece of wood from a house now torn down.. I love creating jewelry with a background, a soul and a voice.



I live in Sweden and currently avoid commissions. I sometimes do them though - Preferably in metal or glass, but some special items in mixed media or textile happens once in a while as well ;)
Lately I started using horn for carving, both for "medieval" drinkware as well as jewelry.
traditional glassblowing is also what is happening right now; and I get to assist and learn from very skilled tutors.

Currently there's nothing happening on my Etsy, since trying to do the whole VAT/tax/currency change conversion from Paypal to the Swedish IRS/tax system is a nightmare.
