My name is Iryna Shlapakova.
All of my handmade accessories are embroidered using high-quality beads, Swarovski crystals and natural stones.
Most of jewelry is one of a kind. I rarely repeat myself, because stones are unique and it is hard to find two identical ones.
I always loved to craft and design in my free time.
I began knitting and cross-stitching at a young age, but I have fell in love with bead embroidery, and love it so much, putting my heart and soul into the creation of every piece.
Inspiration mostly comes from our Mother Nature.
Working with different stones is fun. Most of the times their beauty will lead me in the design.
I first decided to start my business after realizing how many of my friends adored the handmade beaded jewelry I was wearing.
They started asking me for personal orders and strongly suggested opening up my own online jewelry store.
I decided to take the next step and showcase my work to more people.
I enjoy making my unique beaded jewelry, while also sharing it with others.
I am a winner of multiple beading contests: Bead Dreams, Fire Mountain Swarovski contest, etc.
My work was published in magazines: GMARO, Bead and Button, Beadwork, and Beads & beyond.
Custom orders are welcome.
It is always an honor to create something very unique and special for you.
Making people happy with elegant and exclusive jewelry is my goal!
Also, I am teaching bead embroidery (private lessons).
You can learn to make unique pendants, rings, cuff bracelets, earrings, brooches and hair barrettes.
All materials are included!
I’m located in NJ.
