Apollinariya Koprivnik is a Slovenian based jewelry design artist. A self-taught beader, started in the year 2011. She graduated with master degree in architecture yet started her own path in the world of glass beads and crystals.
From the beginning she was using only beads and embroidery technique, then she got inspired by Swarovski crystals and semiprecious stones. Since 2013, she has been working with mixed techniques as embroidery and bead weaving, by combining all sorts of Swarovski stones and elements, constantly searching for new and unusual materials. In January 2014 she started to create her instructions and tutorials for beading. She calls her art “Beaded Architecture” since her designs have complex multilayered structure.
She had several publications in international magazines (like Perlen Poesie, Germany, Make & Sell Jewellery, UK, Bead & Jewellery, UK and other). She is teaching workshop classes in Europe and USA and always is improving her technique by taking part in international beading competitions as a participant – organized by Swarovski Russia, Fire and Mountain gems, the Beadsmith and is also an invited judge in international beading contests for official Swarovski retailer shop Greenbird.ru.
In addition to the classes currently open for registration, Polina will also be teaching 3 new designs. We will publish registration details as soon as we have all of the info. They will all be exclusive to SocialBeadia and I know you will love them, so mark your calendars.
