About

I was born and raised in Switzerland. Later, I studied Architecture at the University of Oregon and then lived in New York City for several years. Bored with the monotony of working mostly on AUTOCADD, I started taking Glass and Jewelry classes at the Craftstudent's League in Manhatten. That's when I discovered my love of working with metal, glass and stones to create beautiful objects. This led me to come to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and seriously study jewelry and silversmithing with Billy King. I work in Sterling silver and use some copper for accents, mokume gane and married metals. All the stones I use are natural and most are mined and cut here in Mexico. My work reflects my love of modern design. I am inspired by nature, my surroundings, and the materials I use. For me, jewelry is not just a fashion accessory, but a piece of art that adorns the wearers and reflects their personalities and feelings.
