About

A love of the little things

After a few detours I came back to what I love to do most:
Working with my hands.
Just by lucky happenstance in 1996 I landed a spot as an apprentice as a Goldsmith in Dortmund Germany, which are very in demand.

After moving to the United States in 2002, I set up shop in my home and started selling to friends. I've been running my own business ever since.

Most of my work is made from silver and gold. For a pop of color or some sparkle I like to add precious and semi precious stones.
Usually I start with silver sheet, which I cut with a jig saw. The pieces are bend or forged and soldered. Then I create different finishes using steel wool for brushed finishes or hammers , stamps and files for a more textured look.

I find inspiration in modern architecture and nature. Lately I'm also interested in science imaging and graphics. I also create custom designs for customers and often this collaboration sparks new ideas.

I love working on small things, trying to create perfect little objects. It's just the right dimension for me.

Around the web

Production partners

  • Carrera

    NY, United States

    As recommended by another jewelry artist I use Carrera for small, repetitive and labor intensive parts. Carrera is a very well established casting service , that works with many jewelers in New York and around the country.
