Introduction Hi, I am Malin, a Swedish designer and maker of jewelry. I have a background in Graphic and Industrial Design, and Art. But I am unfortunately no longer able to work professionally due to health reasons. I have had MS since my teens. Still however I have a strong urge for working with form and color, and creating things. So I got into making jewelry. I love it! It gives me a wonderful possibility to use all my former knowledge and experience and yet keep learning new things and experimenting with exciting techniques. It is a whole new universe to explore. For instance I have developed a strong passion for Art Beads. Almost all of my jewelry includes at least one set of Art Beads. 
I’ve been published in a few international jewelry magazines such as Beads and Beyond (UK), Stringing (USA) and Belle Armoire (USA). I was one of the contributors of the book Bead Soup Blog Party by Lori Anderson. I am one of the regular contributors on the Earrings Everyday blog: Lots of love,
