Jewellery

“The objects I create have human scale and are not defined by traditional typologies of jewellery. Art jewelry as an object of life. My work is an invitation for others to discover their own possibilities, to find ways for the object to converse with the body. A lot of people consider jewellery as decoration worn onto the exterior. However, it can be considered as a question or topic derived from one’s own imagination, and/or political ideas of our current conditions.”
