Unique Handmade Jewelry That Rocks

I’ve been making jewelery most of my life. I love metals, raw or processed, it matters not. In 1987 I took my passion further, attending metal smithing courses at the Southwestern Cultural Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At the time, I was studying the art of Astrology, so I began to independently study the stones representation via the Astrological signs and their various healing properties. I’ve been a professional astrologer since 1989 and love to marry this knowledge as well as the healing properties, within many of my pieces.

Made with Love from Warsaw

I have always been “against” mass production. It was easy in communist times to be “against”. There was nothing in shops so we made our own clothes, we dyed them. I even made shoes for myself. Everything was gray, so once a person was wearing colourful cloth – that one was automatically “against”.

Than the capitalists came. Everybody could buy everything. But it’s so boring! I spent almost 20 years in advertising as a creative writer and consultant, but I was missing something. When my kids were born I started to smell what I was missing. It was the “against” part of me. The roots of myself. So here I am – knitting, crocheting and getting ready to start making my own soap and lip balms! I love those moments when I make my stuff, kids are playing around, we have time to talk, to be together!

I encourage all my readers to buy local, buy handmade, and keep everything close to the source. It really is a small world, but the retail industry is massive. I think it’s important to keep things in perspective and not lose sight of where our goods are coming from, so I try to get them straight from the hands that made them.

The goal of today’s crafter is to make jewelry as unique as the person wearing it. Each and every wire wrapped necklace, seed bead earring and accessory she sends out comes in its very own handmade box – almost as gorgeous as the jewelry itself!
