When I bead and design I always look for names that clicks with the piece that I am making... With this pendant I came across Kallista. The name Kallista is Greek of origin and has the meaning: most beautiful. Almost immediately I fell in love with the name and had to insert it into the title! And thus, Star of Kallista was born.

Hi, My name is Bianca van der Molen. About ten years ago I came in contact with beads, during a small workshop at my job. Since then I was completely hooked on the beads! Over the years I thaught myself to bead, from "just" stringing (with a little bit of wirewrapping) beads, bead embroidery and then to beadweaving! I just love it that you can make the most intricate but yet simple jewerly by just weaving the beads with different techniques. At the end of 2012 I began writing my first tutorial: Star of Kallista. At that same date I opened up my etsy store (see my tutorial pages). Since then I published several more in my etsy store and in two (international) bead magazines!
