|Candan Imrak at her studio|
I attended lampwork bead making classes as a hobby at Kurshuni in Turkey, to bring some color to my stressful professional life. In 2005 after my retirement, I moved with my family to a small town on a peninsula facing the Mediterranean and the Aegean sea in Turkey. In that beautiful environment, my husband set me up a small studio next to our house.
At first, I started making lampwork beads and jewelry as gifts to my friends but that soon became a rather expensive hobby so I decided to open an ETSY shop and share my designs with the whole world. Having an online shop is a wonderful experience, as I got to meet people from around the globe and share the same interests. It also makes me very happy to see and meet the people who have bought and wear my designs.
I use the best glass rods, high quality leather and findings in the market as I take great pride in creating each one of these lampwork beads and jewelry from start to finish.
