Olga is one of our newest artisan partners through our collaboration with the non-profit organization Friendship Bridge. Olga learned how to weave when she was nine years old, and her first project included hand-crafted belts, beaded hair clips, and ankle bracelets. Olga’s determination and spirit are evident from the moment you meet her, she has an infectious smile and sparkle in her eye. Olga mainly specializes in beadwork and is excited to take on some custom orders!
