I am self-taught jewelry artist and have been creating unique jewelry since my teenage years using a variety of materials, mostly stainless steel, colored copper, silver, gemstones, crystals and leather.
I learned knitting when I was a child and love to knit and crochet with wire, but my favorite jewelry making technique is chainmaille, a medieval method of weaving metal wire to create amour invented by Celts in 5th century.
After years of studying chainmaille I am still fascinated by it and know about 30-40 weaves. I am also passionate about music and architecture - I play bass guitar and work as a civil engineer and house designer and I teach children how to play guitar.
