Jolanda J. Hos lives with her boyfriend in the Northwestern part of The Netherlands, close to the North sea beaches. She loves animals and has a big black Labrador mix, two fluffy cats and a fish pond.
Her biggest inspiration is nature, especially the beaches and the ocean. This is seen in her design, which has an organic character.
"Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by glass. When sunlight shines through glass in a variety of colors, it makes me happy. In 2006, when I found out that it was possible to melt glass at home with a torch, I was sold. I love the way glass turns to liquid when heated, and then turns solid again when it cools, as if nothing ever happened."
Jolanda J. Hos is one of the winners of People's Bead 2012 and designed Chakra Colors for the Spiritual Collection.
