      About the author of the tutorial
      Alisa Bordo
      I am Alisa Bordo – this name represents me as an artist. Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, I now live in Mannheim, Germany. My passion is to create beautiful one-of-a-kind accessories that emphasize the style and personality of their owner.
      "I love the vintage feel of shabby chic, the elegance of the baroque, and the austere beauty of the ethnic. I am not willing to give any of it up: I love to mix silk roses with coarse felts and bits of lace. My pieces are sometimes hauntingly monochromatic; at other times they are bursting with colors.

      I am surrounded by the world of glorious diversity. I see it all, appreciate it all and recreate this diversity in my works.

      My designs can be described as the finishing touches, they complete an image and make it whole".
