About Me

Hello and welcome to my little website, my dear beading friends around the world!

My name is Szidonia or Sidonia, which is the same thing written in two different languages – Hungarian and Romanian. My country of birth is Romania, but I am an ethnic Hungarian. To further confuse things, I live in Italy since 2001. 🙂

I first started beading in 2012, totally by chance. I had never been attracted by any kind of crafts, although I had always had crafty things around me, with my mum making beautiful macrame doilies.

I first started by making simple earrings like taking a drop bead and finding creative ways to wire wrap it and connect it to an ear wire. Then, one day, I stumbled upon some beading video tutorials and the rest is history!
Since then I’ve had many projects published in beading magazines and I continue to design beautiful, and easy to recreate, beadwoven jewelry patterns and then write them down into tutorials, for everyone and anyone who enjoy bead weaving jewelry.

If you want to treat your self with some free beading tutorials, just visit my Youtube channel called Sidonia’s Handmade Jewelry, by clicking the link here.  Or visit the Free Beading Tutorials category on this site, where you’ll always find some freebies!

Happy beading!
