Meet a team member - Eline from byEline

By Eline it is.
I live in Norway, a country with a substantial winter where wool makes sense. I started to knit to stay warm in my on style - and I started really early developing that style. I have never stopped knitting and developing my own designs. 

It all started the usual way; I learned to knit by my mom at an early age. Thanks mom! 

After many years studying and working in international politics I needed to create something of my own form time to time. Knitting proved to be the only craft of mine that I could take on travels and do in airports and hotel rooms.

As so many fast knitters I ended up with more warm wooly things that me, family and friends needed and Etsy was the way to clear the knitting basket for finished projects!

Knitting my own designs has always been my favourite thing to do, and after being encourage by a publisher I started to write down my patterns to share. What a strike of luck! I have since been published in Vogue Knitting (US), The Knitter (UK) and in August 2013 my first knitting book "Knit Nordic" (Collins & Brown 2013) is available in the UK and online!

Meet a team member - Yuliya from Juliyamrboro

Handmade Lampwork Beads 

Hello and Welcome to my boro-world!
In my shop you can find lampwork beads, made by me.

Many-many years ago in Italy, I saw Murano glass and fell in love with it. I've been lampworking since 2008 and I enjoy every moment working with glass and torch. Glass is an amazing thing, it's full of surprises!

I use soft glass too. My real love is BORO glass. Maybe, because my favorite style in jewelry is an organic style. BORO glass give you endless possibilities to express natures beauty.

When looking into lampwork beads you can imagine small universes such as lakes, seas, sandy beaches or the moon. Colors pop out like looking at flowers in a garden or wandering through a forest or a jungle.

If you have ANY questions, please, don't hesitate to contact me!

Thank you for your interest. Start creating!

Meet a team member - Trude from The Norwegian Saga

Norwegian made woven decorations, crochet and knitting 

I'm from Norway where I work and live by the forest, my big inspiration. I weave, crochet and knit. And I do so with a lot of passion.

Every piece I make, whether it's a knitted piece of clothing or a woven wall hanging, is inspired by the old norwegian culture and mother nature's beauty. It can be the shape of a tree or the color of the leaves, in one way or another you can find a piece of nature and Norway in my creations.

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.
