My Bio
Who I am

I'm a thirtysomething-year old woman from Germany and a teacher to be.

I am not a professional, art is a hobby for me and I don't stick to one thing exactly. I work with metal parts and make jewelry from it. I started with gears (later was told that there is this thing called steampunk) and recently started with wire-wrapping.

I love playing around with photography and the Gimp, even though I have a reallly... limited cam only.

When I write it's mostly in German since my English is not so good that I trust myself to write in it without mistakes.

I hate bad grammar or spelling. Things like "your welcome" or cheezburger-speech roll my toenails up.

I am a goth and happy with it.

Favourite genre of music: Gothic /Rock/classic

Personal Quote: Na Toll!

As some of you might have noticed, I am not as active as before. One of the main reasons is that my current favourite pasttime is not really artistic. After all, following instructional crochet-videos is not what I would call creative. But since it seems this infatuation is not going anywhere soon, I figured I could at least do something useful with it. So after wrapping all my friends in selfmade scarves and hats, I asked at the local homeless-project what they need. And they said not so much hats and scarves, but gloves and socks. What you see below are the first outcomes. Mostly fingerless, since I figured the guys and gals can't always pull the gloves off if they e.g. want to smoke a cigarette. The people from the project were so nice to gift me some socks-wool they had, which I combined with black acrylic wool to make it thicker. One of the things the lady from the project told me is that most homeless prefer black and dark colours, to not stand out if the hide in the woods,

Since I am again shaking my head about some prizes: Dear crafters (especially those doing things with beads, needles and wool): If they want to sell you a wonderful storing option for your beads, a sewing box etc - take a deep breath and ask yoursel

I know nobody requested it, but still I am proud: my first design on fabric is now available! A while ago I found the platform "stoffn", where you can upload your own designs and they will print it to you specifications. It's a Germany based business which has also a thing for being eco-friendly, meaning they will do what they can to produce less leftovers etc. That means you have to wait about 3-5 weeks, since they collect orders with the same fabric first. They ship internationally and have high quality stadards. You can't publish a fabric you have not ordered and checked the quality first for example whick lowers the chance for bad surprises. So, long story short, if youre interested you can find my first published design here: https://www.stoffn.de/profil/user/Xenaris.html You can choose the size of the pattern and fabric as well as the fabric itself. However you must accept that it will zake some time until you get it, but it will be worth the wait. :) Yours, Xen
