Already in childhood, I liked to make my own things. Especially Jewellery. But only since adolescence have I been developing this hobby. I've explored many different techniques and materials since, but nowadays my materials of choice are mainly silver and (semi) precious stones. The technique I use most often is called 'wire wrapping', though I sometimes apply silver smithing techniques such as soldering as well.

All my jewellery is created with great care. The silver wire that I use is heated, bent, curled, cut, sanded, polished and hammered into a unique piece of art. Often, my jewellery is finished with a dark grey patina that gives them more visual depth and a rustic feel.

Where to buy?

My jewellery and tutorials are for sale on Etsy, which is an online platform on which many artists and craftsmen sell their creations. On Etsy, I have three different online stores: One for tutorials and findigngs (Yourbeadsandfindings), one for the bigger, more intricate pieces (Yeske Crafts) and another for simpler, everyday-wear type of jewellery (Yeske Misc):
