About The Artist
Jewelry - Metal • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
My jewelry pieces are unique editions and question the relationship between perceived perfection and representation of self. They’re made from recycled sterling silver sheet and wire, with occasional use of gold. My work puts emphasis on texture, which is mainly achieved through fusion and reticulation. Decoration and contrasting accents are provided with Keum-Bo (23k gold gilding), patinas, mokume-gané (studio-made billets), gold, pearls and gemstones.

Each piece is hand-fabricated using both traditional and unconventional techniques. Texture is achieved through reticulation, hammering on organic templates (stones, rusted rail parts), roll printing, and fusion. I design with my hands, letting gems and metals inspire me, and then just start making, which leads each time to a unique piece. Adding gold, pearls or patinas brings balance and light to the wild, organic shapes.
