A bit about Svetlana
Welcome and thank you very much for visiting my page!
I am a self-taught jewelry artist with a background in music and graphic design.
I was born and raised in Moldova and lived for more than a decade in New York City. I presently reside in Vancouver, Washington.
Pencils and paints have been my favorite tools of self-expression since I can remember. As a child, I could sit and draw for hours, paying little notice to the time, but it was music that I decided to devote my life to. I was young and… in love with “Moonlight” Sonata. It would come to pass that I would first earn a bachelor’s degree in music, and secondly – and much later, an associate’s degree in graphic design.
I discovered beads when I decided to fix a pearl necklace I had brought back from one of my trips. Then I had an idea of decorating a tank top with beads… I have been decorating with beads ever since.
I primarily work with seed beads and natural stones, and use fabric or other materials from time to time. I receive inspiration for my work from fashion, nature, and from the numerous museums I have visited around the world. Please, feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of my work presented here.
I have huge plans for this year! Would you like to be the first to know what is happening?
Sign up and stay tuned!

“Shopping for beads is one of my favorite activities. It includes walking, designing, solving math problems, creating addiction problems, talking and imagining unrealistic things. Good sense of humor is required, advanced beading skills are not!”

What My Clients Say
The bracelet is very nice! Thank you for the wonderful job you have done!
I love this bracelet: the pattern is well written and with the pictures, is very easy to follow. I love the tips on choosing colors and beads!!
Very clear instructions and illustrations. Results are beautiful!
Svetlana is a very accomplished artist who makes awesome beaded jewelry creations. My pendant has bursts of amethyst and purple pearls and seed beads which frame a gorgeous, luminous freshwater pearl.This handmade piece is stunningly beautiful. When I recently wore this pendant in Paris, many people stopped me on the street to compliment me and ask where they might find the artisan who made it. I felt very elegant wearing it.
This necklace is without question a statement piece, and is so eye-catching, that other jewelry is often not required to be worn simultaneously. I highly recommend Svetlana’s jewelry – it is beautiful, high quality, and is created by a radiant woman. I could not be more happy with my necklace and look forward to adding more of her jewelry to my collection.
