OLGA VINNERE PETTERSSON

Borne in Latvia, living in Sweden.

I started beading in 2008, while pregnant with my second child. The passion has escalated from stringing simple necklaces to writing patterns and creating large and complex beadwoven pieces.

Beading is my passion and my therapy. I love combining different techniques and materials - beads, stones, metals and textiles. Very often it happens that the materials themselves inspire me to create something new and unusual. Otherwise, lots of my inspiration come from nature.

Teaching basic and advanced beadweaving since 2011; have had several personal exhibitions in art galleries in Sweden.
