Iryna Shlapakova

My name is Iryna Shlapakova and I am a self-taught beader and an operating room nurse.
  I am a winner of multiple beading contests: Bead Dreams, Fire Mountain Swarovski contest, etc. My work was published in several magazines: GMARO, Bead and Button, Beadwork, and Beads & Beyond.


In 2013, I taught myself how to create jewelry by trial and error, improving with each design. I perfectly understand the fear of mistakes, lack of confidence, and knowledge of where to get materials for jewelry creation. Therefore, I create tutorials in such a way that any person, even without experience, can create a piece of jewelry following my tutorials. My tutorials contain detailed descriptions and large step-by-step pictures.


I like to incorporate different materials and bead types into my design. My goal is to make the learning process stress-free.


I sell jewelry, beading kits, and tutorials through my brand Exclusive Craft at
