Already from early childhood Mette Bjerregaard Gaardbo was fascinated by design, flowers, and colors. First she became a Scandinavian trained florist. When moving from Denmark to America in 2007 she came across handcrafted millefiori beads and was quickly drawn towards learning more about the Millefiori Technique. Polymer clay became her new medium of choice, and in 2009 she started MBGdesign. Her goal is to create pieces which stand out in shape, form and color. Mette puts the greatest pride into every step of the process of creating innovative, contemporary wearable art.
