I have the privilege of meeting lots of amazing beaders from all over the world in my work. We are a global network of beaders in different roles that enjoy working together in various ways.
My tutorials are found in my Etsy shop Tigerguld, but you can also buy them in the following Swedish bead shops.
My beadwork has been showcased at two art galleries in the Stockholm Old Town between the years of 2012 and 2016. The exhibits ”Våreld”, ”Rimfrost” and ”Glimmer” was shared with Kerstin Kallin of Kronbruden. Olga Vinnere Pettersson from Made by Olga and I returned three years in a row with “Back to the Roots”. “Intriguing Elegance”, which I participated in together with Anci Åse from Alfsdotter Creations in spring 2016, is my final exhibit for the time being.
Some of my work has also been on display in various locations:
- Big Bead Show in Esher (U.K)
- Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee (America)
- Gallery T in Tokyo (Japan)
- Master-Beads Creattiva in Bergamo (Italy)
- Creativa in Dortmund (Germany)
- Beaders Best Perlenkunst-messe in Stuttgardt (Germany)
Swedish bead events
We enjoy meeting up to bead together in Sweden. Across the country we regularly have bead groups with 10 – 50 participants. Every year we also meet up at bigger events, for instance “Beadalong” that takes place in October. The bigger events are special; we spend an entire weekend beading together in one great hall, we compete in friendly competitions, and teach and learn new techniques and designs. A few bead shops bring their stock to fill our shopping needs as well. These events are like no other!
Bead Lovers Meet lasted between 2013 - 2017
Beadalong is held every October in the Stockholm area
Claspgarten is a German manufacturer of high quality clasps and findings. I often use their clasps, for instance in the necklace ”Kaputt Draconis” below.
