Here is what she says about herself -
My name is Ginta and I am 35. I come from Latvia. I've been quietly thinking and creating myself. Maybe someone will tell that God created us, but its hard to aware what we are before we see it through.
These are my hands that pick up needle every day.
These are my eyes that is looking for the best place for each tiny bead.
This is my heart that lives with the caparison and give best wishes and my blessings to the new owner.
Year ago I didn't know much about beads. But when my daughter born, my everyday routine changed. From age 4 I remember myself as a girl with crochet hook or knitting needles in hands. I've made lots of jackets, jumpers, dresses and so on.. But now is time for beads.
Every item is unique. I use lots of seed beads, natural stones, ribbons, laces, nature products- seed bones and wood, amber. I've made bracelets, necklaces, earrings, bags, rings. My most joyful are bracelets. You can see them in gallery here
Inspiration and joy of creation is everywhere when sun shines or it's snowing white, when other masters show their works from past or made just yesterday.. But I still have a feeleng - there are lots of things to learn.. And I will .
Actually there is no other way to feel like medieval Queen or princess from the story. True passion and even pain makes you bloom..I made this corset when I was 7 months pregnant and couldn't wait until I'll can wear it myself. But funniest thing is - it didn't fit me after having baby.. So now it is for sale.. Wierd colors, I guess, but it was how I felt then :) Orange with the blue stripes :)
So we've all taken the tests, right? They tell you what muppet character you're most like, what eating utensile is best for you, what color your aura is. But in the end I think we can all admit that they're totally useless. That's why I put here this test, which is officially useless and tells you so right off the bat so you won't get any false notions or big ideas about it. The questions will be pointless. The answers will be random. And the results will be so senseless you'll have no idea what they mean... you might even feel like you know less about yourself. If you thought the useless blobs were dumb, you have no idea what you're in store for here. So here it is!
As you can see, I am green dolphin covered with postage stamps :))

But everyone sees things a little differently, so there is quiz to show how your personality might tint things in an interesting way. The answer is a rainbow that looks different and unique (unless you're color blind, in which case you might not find this quiz very satisfying).http://spacefem.com/quizzes/rainbow/
