Om Milena Faé Velho

I am Milena is a brazilian designer who moved to Sweden 6 years and a half ago. I’m able to speak swedish but I feel more comfortable in english. The course will be led in english.
I started using the laser-cut machine in HDK, where I took my masters and I learned to print stuff in plexi. I started using the leftovers from other students. Since it was always just small pieces left, I started to assemble earrings. As covid started and I was unemployed, I started to create jewellery more professionally and got amazing feedback. Ever since, I’ve been selling my pieces on Etsy and it has been delivered to any countries in Europe (Italy, Germany, Belgium, Finland, France, etc).
Nowadays I continue to create jewellery alongside a part-time job as Visual Merchandiser at Adidas store in Kungsbacka.
