About

About me:

Although a city girl, I am incessantly drawn to nature, both mother and human. This duality is a constant source of inspiration as I attempt to find a balance between the raw, organic and the synthetic, man made. A self-trained jeweler, I love to combine the precious with the mundane, and to create unusual associations between forms. The resulting exploration process is endless and yet deeply satisfying. Each collection piece has a story behind it, just as each custom piece has your story behind it.
