My name is Francesca Boretti. I’m Italian but I live in Switzerland since 2010.
I first learned the basics to make a jointed teddy bear in 2004. That was the beginning of a passion that I hope will fuel my creative life for many years to come. Through the years my craft has developed, incorporating new techniques such as needle felting and polymer clay sculpting for instance.
I started selling my creations in 2011 with the business name of KALEideaSCOPE...a kaleidoscope of ideas!
What I love the most is devising new designs. The animal world is a wonderful inspiration: foxes, raccoons, cats, dogs, hedgehogs...all wait in my head to be given a furry form!
