Born in Barcelona on 24/04/1976, Gemma Ballesté is married and has two children. On finishing her schooling, she travelled round Spain and Europe for several years as a tour guide, and then lived in Switzerland for a couple of years. The last 15 years of her career, she managed sales teams for an important multinational cosmetics company.
Her passion for crafts began several years ago, starting with crochet with thick materials like recycled fabric yarn and then with new materials as well as classic and conventional ones.
This passion led her to create her own designs: GEMbags, used by well-known models, and available to everyone through the GEMbags kits.
Gemma's philosophy of life is.”Doing what I love and makes me happy”.
