Today it is Justyna's 37th birthday

Happy birthday Justyna, you remain both missed and loved by me in equal measure.

This isn't the tribute you deserve as it is far too short, but being sick all night and all day even writing this down has taken a lot of  effort from me.

Justyna's shop is now reopened

I am pleased to announce that Eridhan Creations has been reopened again!

Just as Justyna (and everyone else) wanted from me, all her patterns are once again available for purchase.
It will be an honour to make sure that her memory will live on and I hope this will mean that her work will be both loved and admired for generations to come.

The prices on the patterns will remain as they were before the shop was down, none of them have been changed.
Some of the money from the sales will now also be given to charity.

The Etsy shop has also been renamed from EridhanCreations to InMemoryOfEridhan.

You can find the shop on the Etsy logo up on the left or on the link below on this post. =)

A big thank you to everyone

Today it is a week since Justyna passed away from us. The comments on the blog and all the messages I have gotten has been overwhelming and I want to thank everyone for all your kind words and your support during this difficult time.
It is heartwarming to also hear that she is such a big inspiration to so many people and that she inspired people through more than just her beading.
There is no other person in the world that I admire more than her.

After some serious consideration I have decided that the blog will remain open. It has brought a lot of joy and happiness to a lot of people and closing the blog down would be taking that away from them. Instead it should be shared with others.
It is likely that Justyna's site on Pinterest will remain as well.

The shop however will remain closed. It wouldn't be right to keep her shop going after her death.
But that doesn't mean that a new shop could not be opened again some day to honour Justyna's memory.

A talented beader and a wonderful person is no longer with us

It is with great sadness that I will announce today that Justyna has passed away.

That she has been fighting a long and hard battle against cancer was no secret to most people who has been following her work on here and Etsy over the years.
That battle ended yesterday and we are one amazing person less in the world because of it.

On both her behalf and mine I want to thank you all who encouraged and inspired Justyna to keep doing what she loved the most; beautiful jewelry. It really motivated her to fight her illness even harder.

She was an amazing woman, kind and a very positive person that would always bounce back from even the worst setbacks. She was also a very talented person who had a knack for quickly mastering any handicrafts that she tried her hands on. But it was the beading that she really fell in love with!

It has been a privilege as well as an honour to have been an important part of her life.

Rest easy now, Justyna. You are terribly missed.

This blog as well as Justyna's Etsy shop (with no listings no longer available) will be closed down in the future, but I hope that both she and her work will still be loved and admired by many for a many years to come.

Thank you
