About handmade jewelry designer Yulia Yeshanov
My name is Yulia. I'm a nurse and I love my job. But throughout my life I loved crafts. I used to sew, knit, embroider.
My life changed dramatically, my job changed, but my love for making beautiful things remained.
A few years ago I purchased a beautiful gemstone and wanted to make a pendant out of it. I started to look through the Internet for guidance on how to do this. I bought tools. And the journey started. After drilling holes in stones, I learned to work with wire. Then - beading, weaving, leather work. And quite by chance, I came across a video on YouTube how to make a pendant from polymer clay. This was a love from the first glance. Polymer clay is an amazing and versatile material that opens up enormous perspectives for creativity. Its possibilities are endless. I try to learn and improve all the time, in order to create the most professional work. I participate in international seminars and learn from masters. In addition to the pleasure to see the results of my work, the process of work itself brings great benefits.
Working as a nurse in intensive care means to work in constant stressogenic environment. So jewelry making is my psychotherapy and relaxation. So I reach two goals: I maintain my nervous system in balance and bring beauty into the world.
Finally: I would like to see happy, healthy people around me who can enjoy the results of my work!
