I thought I should properly introduce myself! My name is Barbara Adamiec, short Basia. I love hiking and adventures, mountains, forests and rivers, pizzas, chocolate and seeing movies on a big screen (small is great too, with a delicious hot tea or honey dark beer!) :) I live in Bristol, United Kingdom but I'm Polish and I studied in amazing city of Cracow!
I'm a self-taught metalsmith. I've been loving craft since I remember and making jewelry would always be my favourite, right next to dancing and singing. I love designing and making process and couldn't be happier to finally discover "what I want to do in my life". Being fortunate enough to have more than one talent, I could never decide on one professiom and was trying to do it all. And we know how that ends, you're good but not best or exceptionally successful at any, beacuse you can't do it all perfect. So finally, instead of holding onto every thing I decided it's time to choose one and for me that was metalsmithing, designing and making beautiful and unique jewelry.
I graduated as an art historian so I didn't want to back go to chool nor study again. I'm learning myself and to be honest, it's enough! The passion, patience and persistence is all you need. And maybe more consistency, which I will need to work on! Having two day jobs it might be difficult sometimes but I'll get there :)
