I'm from north of Russia, but now I’m live in Brindisi (South Italy).
What got you started crafting?
I finished Art School and then high school as a sewer. I generally sew for me and my friends, but ow I'm making leather jewelry and accessories, fabric jewelry, quilted bags and pillows, corsets and medieval costumes.
I like to create Quilted bags in Spiral styles, because every bag is unique and original. It’s impossible to repeat it.
I always try to find some new technique and materials.
What is your source of inspiration?
I inspired by colours and textures. When I see some amazing fabric I instantly have many ideas on what I can create from it. When I find a new technique, or read new tutorial, I cant wait to try it.
What have you made recently?
I made pretty mustache leather pendants and three bobby pins with leather flowers. Now I'm making red shoe clips with leather flowers.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I have an Etsy shop. Over the summer I participated local shows, and I had an exposition in Bad&Brуakfast.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I have been an artist all my life, and I love to do something creative for me, my family or my friends. I like to see the emotions on their faces after receiving my handmade gift.
