I was born in picturesque South Siberia, Russia, surrounded by blue lakes and rivers, snow and rocky mountains, and green valleys. My birthplace gives inspiration to my artwork. Today, I live in Israel, another beautiful place that inspires me with a large number of cultures and SSS (sea, sun, sand). I have been beading for over eight years and enjoy working and teaching at our bead store, World of Beads. I like to design new pieces of art by mixing different types of beads in my jewelry. Most of all, I like to work with new bead shapes and create new designs with them.
