My name is Vanessa and I have been doing bead jewellery since I was a teenager.
I do this during my free time, it’s a way to relax and be creative at the same time.
A lot of my beads are still remains of the big amount of material I brought back from Thailand where I had lived 2 years in 2000 until 2002.
I have also brought back some nice Turquoise from Nepal and India (Ladakh and Darjeeling)
Now I live in the Netherlands and I buy my beads mainly at Habella in Korte Poten in The Hague.
When I go to Flea markets or antic markets I always look at old jewellery or any type of beads that I could recycle.
