About

Jewellery designer and maker, trained in Italy and based in Nicosia - Cyprus.

I have been designing and producing jewellery since 1991.

The way I work comes from my deepest urge to extract pure, simple form and lines out of the beauty that surrounds us. I incessantly strive to achieve thoughtful designs that are fully functional and become one with the body. When a piece of jewellery is appreciated and adorned, it is transformed into a symbol of contemporary culture.

I approach jewellery not as lifeless, decorative objects, but as pieces that rest on the body, assuming their own individual character through movement, line and form. This concept has influenced, and at times determined, my personal style and the evolution of my work.

Working mainly with silver and gold, two soft metals that allow movement between light and darkness, void and depth, I have focused on emphasizing the surface and line defined by the material itself, sometimes intervened by other material such as wood, plastic and stone. Forms are simple, emerging into a new minimalism, opening out, wrapping round and extending across the body, implying that they must be worn in order to be fully revealed.

My collections usually consist of 5 limited edition pieces as well as unlimited editions.
