How to become fairy magic

I make glass beads for people who love the little things, like to look at them, admire them, move them.

Jewelry that stimulates the senses and brings joy through its materials, structure, shape and color.

Dreams made of glass

I am fascinated by the depth and clarity of the glass and the countless possibilities that the material offers. Little works of art are created with great attention to detail. I quickly realized that I wanted to turn this passion and love for my glass beads into a profession. A glass bead has so much more - it hides a fascinating whole world.


I discovered my creative streak very early on, be it in my artistic education or in music. So it was not surprising that my first job led me to photography, which later expanded to become a graphic designer. In mid-2008 I discovered on the Internet that you can make glass beads yourself. From then on there was no other hobby for me and now I'm addicted to glass!


Each glass bead I make is melted individually in an open flame at approx. 750 ° C. For the production of my glass beads, I only use high-quality glass, such as Murano glass, which is then melted around a stainless steel mandrel. With the help of heat, gravity and surface tension, I change the glass, which results in numerous shapes and colors. This process can take up to an hour. Then my glass beads are tempered in a special oven, so that the color brilliance and longevity are guaranteed for a long time.
