My name is Jakelina Listes, I am a true "Jack of all trades", and artist, interior decorator, a jewellery and accessories designer, sewer, painter, crafter, social worker, humanitarian, and forever interested and captured by the beauty of the worlds wealth of culture and diversity. I am originally from Croatia, and I currently live in Canada. My diverse background is reflected in my work. In addition to various artistic forms, I have been designing jewellery and accessories for more than 25 years, always looking for ways to use the existing pieces and materials and redesign them into something new again. This passion of mine lead me to expand my creativity to other mediums, such as textile, so I started making bags, scarves, aprons, pillows etc. I would describe my style as ethnic, bohemian and eclectic. The main inspiration for my work can be found in different global ethnic customs, art and crafts. As I use lot of vintage and up-cycled materials most of my creations are pretty hard to replicate, which makes them truly unique.
