“Anything can be inspiration for me. I just need to look around, observe, let my
imagination start to flow and connect shapes.
The emotional impulses that inspire me to design, lead me straight to the precious metal.
I begin working with an idea about the form a piece of jewellery or an object will take.
Much happens as I work, and I let my material take the lead. Whether this process results in a brooch or a silver spoon… cannot be predicted.
Unforeseen events and unexpected variations make my material an endless world in which to explore and discover.”
