each one of us unique and that is why each piece should be unique.
Be it for man, woman or child.

For me, there are 3 criteria in my craft that must always be upheld and each as important as the other.

Quality

It must last a lifetime and beyond.
For this reason I use largely gold, silver and natural gems.
I am fascinated with gemstones and how they emerge from our planet . For me quality does not have to equal purity. Whereas ‘mainstream’ jewelers will insist on 100% purity for me they are missing out on those vital totally individual characteristics that a gem will hold.

 

Aesthetics

I see the jewelry as an ornament, a way to distinguish yourself, to be unique.  A jewel with a certain “message” should always look beautiful and attractive to you. It must be comfortable to wear of course…

Emotion

For me, this is very personal. It may depend on how it came into your possession. Whether it was bought for you, or perhaps you purchased it yourself.
Maybe it was love at 1st sight (my favourite)
Possibly a shape or colour evokes a memory of something or someone special.

 

Each collection is designed from a certain viewpoint and evolves as it is crafted.
