1. Where’d you grow up and where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Estonia. I left home after I graduated University and I decided to take a year off to do some travelling in Australia. My plans changed quickly and I haven't lived in Estonia for almost a decade now. I have been to BC for 6 years, currently calling Pemberton my home.
2. What is your definition of strength?
Knowing your weaknesses
3. What is something that’s important to you now that never used to be?
Doing something I love. I used to jump from job to job, just to earn a paycheck. Once I found my true passion, I am extremely happy that I can call it my full time job now.
4. How would you describe your style?
I would say that my jewelry is boho style, strongly inspired by the nature.
5. Favourite food to cook at home?
Mashed potatoes. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner :D

Steven Pressfield “The War Of Art”
Estonian historical novel “Truth and Justice” by A. H. Tammsaare
7. What’s something you want to accomplish in the next year?
Keep growing my business while finding a good balance between work and play
8. Tell us something people would find surprising about you:
I don't like bananas. My birthday is on Christmas day (and I share my birthday with my grandma). Oh, and I can't count in English (I think and even dream in English but I have to do the numbers in Estonian).
9. Favourite movie?
The Intouchables... I think
10. How do you want people to remember you?
As a person that hardly ever says NO - I love challenges and trying new things. I Can't say NO to a good time. And I would never say NO to a friend in need or someone asking for help.
