Meet a team member - Vladimir from Vlad photography


Each photograph in my portfolio may as well be perceived as a single study. Each is beholding similar characteristics as a reflection of a daydreaming person. One who is very much fascinated by nature, often in an unreal or surreal manner. In this sense, I see my style of photography somewhere between Pictorialism and Impressionism. I try to collide and mimic all the qualities of these aesthetic movements.

I was an admirer of photography long before I went through studies in art and photography at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. I am oriented towards fine art photography. I pride myself in my ability to use good old’ analog cameras and know-how of developing and processing films. I shoot with way heavy but beautiful, large and medium format cameras. My method involves a lot of experimenting with these tools. I modify or interchange parts from different cameras and build accessories that help me to create those dreamy scapes, organically, on the spot.

Thank you for visiting and for your kind support,

Meet a team member - Helen from Sitara Handmade Jewelry

To create is one of the greatest joys !
I'm a happy designer and goldsmith from the land of the midnight sun. All my Sitara jewelry are handmade in Norway and each single gemstone are carefully selected by me ❤ I am strongly influenced by India with its sumptuous colorful culture.

I've also been collecting Norwegian and Nordic design jewelry "all my life".
I have a special love for the modernist jewelry, and the modernist Norwegian designers in particular.
I'm also very fond of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco era

I've been so fortunate to attend the PLUS-goldsmith education; the very same institution once attended by the world famous jewelry designers Tone Vigeland and Anna Greta Eker amongst others.

In my shop I sell both my own handmade Sitara jewelry and silver vintage jewelry.

Welcome to my little world of Organic high quality fabric and comfortable children's clothes. 

I'm Irish but have been living in Norway with my Norwegian husband Klaus about 10 years. I have 3 boys and have never really made them everyday clothes, until I received an overlock machine and then the world of sewing practical items came to life. It is such a joy to make things my kids can w

Meet a team member - Viktoria from Dharma Art Design

Handcrafted jewelry since 2009

I am Viktoria Breda and I'm an obsessed jewelry maker :)
I've been creating jewelry since September 2009, mostly of gemstones and minerals.
It started as a hobby, of course: something was missing, needed something extra to feel creative. My first audience were mineral exhibitions. Later I found a few retail sellers in my home country, started selling online, with more and more sales. Then, as I became more confident and had more and more sales, I started a small venture and it was my part-time job.
I had "grown international" when I discovered Etsy, and I felt very proud and happy that my work is appreciated in other countries, too. :o) 
In January 2016, I moved to Norway with family - being expats, meant we had a lot to leave behind, including my venture, and new things to get used to, so now I am working on building my Norwegian and international business. Still, most of my sales come from in the US - Thanks! :)

What is my strategy? NO MASS PRODUCTION, but unique, handmade, often one-of-a-kind pieces (only a very few exceptions). My head is always full of new ideas and designs, my "workshop desk" is always full of materials and sketches of new designs, supplies waiting to be prepared - I am trying to keep up and share everything new here on Etsy (and on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest).

Please follow me to see my latest creations! :)

Paper products, like cards, gift tags, place cards and more. 


My name is Mari, from Norway. Love to make cards and other paper products and thought I would give Etsy a go. If you want to check out my Facebook or Instagram that would be awesome. I am a engineer at day and crafter by night. Love games and nerdy stuff.

I make most of the products by order and tries to be flexible regarding the wishes from the customers. Custom orders are no extra cost!

All of my cards are doublesided unless other is specified.

Meet a team member - Dawn from Cards and Collars

Creating cards they will save and dog collars you can trust.
My name is Dawn and I am an American living in Norway. I am a stay-at-home-mom for my young son, #magnustheviking.

I love working with my hands. I make cards, dog collars, knit, and crochet to keep my hands busy. I'll primarily have cards and collars on here, hence the name, but will occasionally have pictures of other handmade items.

We are an international family so you can send questions in either english or norwegian.

~About the cards~

All cards are made on a 300gsm card base with decorative papers, stamps, inks, and embellishments to create a custom theme. All cards are unique and can be personalized.

It's somewhat rare for me to put any sentiments or text inside the card. I think something handwritten and straight from the heart is what works best for people to know you are thinking about them and care. :)

~About the collars~

Most are 1" wide. The details will be listed under each photo. Most collars fit medium-sized dogs, i.e, Border Collie.

I started making collars because I couldn't find cute and simple collars in Norway. Since I have 4 dogs, it's much easier to just buy the raw materials and make them myself. But I found myself enjoying it so, now there are lots of extras. :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.!
