Welcome to my blog!
My name is Lena, I’m 26 years old and I love to be creative!
I live in Antwerp, Belgium, with my boyfriend and our cat Basil.
(Yes, this is me eating cake).
I consider myself a very lucky person because I have several passions and interests and I have room to be very creative in life.
I studied Art History at the University of Ghent and I obtained my Master’s degree in 2014. For four and a half years, I was discovering the history of many artists. I wrote my master thesis on the history of Belgian jewelry in the 18th century. This was a very enriching experience: I got to research the jewelry collections of several museums and I was one of the first people to ever have researched this topic.
I am also studying to be a goldsmith – next year will be the third year of the four year course. I have also worked in the diamond jewelry industry for 15 months here in Antwerp, which is one of the most important cities for the diamond trade in the world.
It is safe to say that I love jewelry and everything that is related to it, so you will find many blog posts dedicated to making beautiful items for yourself.
The main goal of this blog is for you to get inspired, to start being creative in life and to make a difference in this world by making lots of handmade stuff!
