“I design and produce contemporary jewellery.
In my work the preciousness of the materials and the value of the final objects are not so important: the project itself is my focus.
My formal research is based on the interaction between body and jewellery, the study of shapes, new materials and technologies.
The production cycle that I manage from the conception to the packaging is a slow high quality process.
The innovation and uniqueness of each piece, along with the time invested in its creation, imbues these objects with importance, meaning and value.
These are durable qualities.
I have a background in computer science and over the years I have cultivated my passion in design and jewellery since I opened my brand more than 10 years ago.
I'm a never ending experimenter. I like to try new ways in jewellery using uncommon materials and new technologies together with traditional handcrafted work.
Although I do appreciate natural forms, geometric shapes are my favorite and my projects are based on big volumes, nesting surfaces and architectural structures.
The result is a collection of pieces that are easy to wear although unconventional, created for people that love to wear jewellery to express a personal style.” Read Less
