PRECIOSA ORNELA - News
Beadworking is first and foremost a way of relaxing for her and an outlet for her slumbering imagination. There is nothing better after a long day stuck in front of a computer at work than to sit down with these small glass products and to create whatever we want.
She comes from Desná, from an area of glassmaking and textiles and has been involved in handcrafts since her childhood. She graduated in glass technology in Železný Brod and non-woven textiles and nanomaterials at the Technical University in Liberec, so her studies were in technical fields. She began bobbin lace making at the age of 12, initially under the guidance of her mother and then later under the leadership of Jana Kneysová and Věra Holomečková.
Karla Mokrošová first encountered beads when she purchased a book on wired jewelry, which she learnt how to make.
She has studied at the Glass Applied Arts Secondary School in Železný Brod and in the Glass Workshop at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague under the tutelage of Professor Vladimír Kopecký.
