I love working with metal, especially with copper and its alloys and with different kinds of minerals. My main sources of inspiration are history (I'm a historian), stories (mythology, literature and other fiction) and nature. Many of my works were inspired by and named after by historical people, ancient works of art (like historical pieces of jewellery, I've seen in museums or books, or architecture), mythological, literary or other fictional people or creatures and organic forms designed by the world's greatest artist - nature.

Interests
I have been quite annoyed with Etsy for some time now so I have decided to close my shop for good. There are several reasons but the two main ones are:

- There's so much clearly not handmade stuff (not even just in the "Vintage"-section but in the "Handmade"-section as well) that the original handcrafted items get lost in the mass of industrial rubbish (see for example: www.regretsy.com/2012/03/09/si…. And Etsy doesn't seem to care as long as they make money with that.

- I don't sell stuff anyway so what's the point in paying listing fees.

So from now on the only place to buy my jewellery will be my own website: mermaidstreasury.eu/. For the next few weeks my Etsy-shop will be in holiday-mode (just in case I change my mind) and then closed.
