The Association of Flower Arrangers and Florists of the Czech Republic has nominated Klára Franc Vavříková as the Czech representative for the 2016 Europa Cup, a significant international flower arranging competition, after her win at the 2014 Flower Arranging Championships of the Czech Republic - the Děčín Anchor.
Her name has resounded throughout the world of bead and seed bead costume jewellery for a number of years. She admittedly did not graduate from any art school, but she has been designing for a number of years and she also makes her own jewellery and lectures at costume jewellery workshops. Her pieces are made under the Snow Mirna brand which, as she herself says, is also her second name.
She has always been animated by passion and an interest in different aspects of creativity and artistic expression and as such she has brought together the two most popular techniques: crochet and beads. Her original bead necklace in last year's contest Battle of the Beadsmith 2014 (BOTB '14) finished a great second place.
