Welcome to GErMano Arts Semi Precious Handcrafted Jewellery,
My name is Teena and I have been creating Jewellery for around 8 years, it all started as a self taught hobby to satisfy my need to express my creativity. I first started with hand stitching then slowly progressed into using metal findings. I attended every Bead Show I could manage to expose myself to in order to find and use as many mediums as possible.
My favorite Mediums to work with are Various metals such as Vintaj Natural Brass, Trinity Brass Co, Sterling Silver, Copper and wire work. I have recently undertaken a shortcourse in basic Silversmithing as well as mastering the art of Cold Connections and will be incorparating this into my work as well as Polymer clay pieces. I often find myself incorporating many different mediums into one piece.
I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of being creative and original as possible and draw my inspiration from many areas of my life, whether it be a day with my children, to a day at the market. I often find that the spark for an idea can come from the most unsual set of circumstances.
My passion has lead me to being able to be published as a designer in Australia's Leading beading publications such as AUSTRALIA BEADING and CREATIVE BEADING AS WELL AS THE LASTEST DIGITAL BEADING MAGAZINE
I do hope you enjoy what you see and find that something special that you can connect with.
I can be found in person at the KALLISTA MARKET in the Dandenong ranges on the first Saturday of every month as well as The EMERALD Market on the 3rd Sunday of each month as well as on Face book.
