About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Designer and maker of jewelery
Location Farentuna, Ekero, Stockholm, Sweden
Introduction Hi, I am Malin, a designer and maker of jewellery. I have a background in Graphic and Industrial Design, and Art. But nowadays I can't work profesionally anylonger due to the fact that I have MS. Instead I got into beading a couple of years ago. And I loooooove it! It gives me a wonderful possibility to use all my former knowledge and experience and yet keep learning new things and experimenting with exciting techniques. It is a whole new universe to explore. I recently started making my own beads in polymer clay for instance. And I have developed a passion for Art Beads. Oh dear, all these wantings, cravings and lusts that the beads create. 

I am Swedish. My husband, Mark, is English and we have been together for more than 15 years now. We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two ginger cats. We all live in a small house in the countryside just outside Stockholm, the capitol of Sweden. I am on Flickr and on Facebook. On other beading communities you might also know me as NodeK, NodekSweden or Swedish Chick.

 I would be very happy if you comment on my posts or write to me.

 Lots of love, 
Interests beading, gardening, music, my family and friends, learning new things, drinking coffee, getting to know new people, to exist, to think, philosophising, discussing, science, cuddling, animals, sailing 2.4, ... and more
