The Russian designer, Varvara of  JewelrybyVarvara, grew up with a father, Vadim Konstantinov, who is a renowned jewelry designer.  She said she never thought of going into his field. Instead, she graduated and worked as an engineer before staying home to raise her children.

She said, "I guess it was my lucky day when I saw an ad for seed beading classes. Sometimes I feel I am the luckiest woman alive - I have great family, supportive friends and my work, which is not just the way to make a living, it's a dream coming true."

Varvara loves the coraling, netting and fringe stitches. I have selected my favorites from her store.  She also has 3 eBooks which are collections of her tutorials.

Unfortunately, Varvara is unable to bead anymore due to health issues. So her friend, a photographer called Galina Barskaya, now manages her store for her so Varvara still has a source of income.

JewelrybyVarvara is a wonderful showing of a passionate beader's art. Hopefully Varvara will someday be able to take up her needle again!
