"I am a contemporary jeweler. As a visual artist, I focus on process more than stories, I think in terms of shape, depth, materiality, light. A form of abstraction that allow those that wear my pieces to enhance their own story. As jewelry items are always seen in the context of one’s personal style, each collection is like a conceptual sandbox: there is a set of coherent rules that one can play with. The rules are open-ended enough that by wearing a particular item, someone can highlight the desired part of her personal identity."
