" I aspire for a wider definition of the term jewelry, aiming to diverse from practicality, and sometimes leave the natural habitat of the jewelry, the body. The creation, whether worn on the body or positioned in space, is an object carrying its own statement. Via old and used materials that bear a nostalgic load, it reflects personal capacity, emotional and experiential. I am committed to creativeness that holds a personal artistic expression free of the traditional and cultural restrictions of gold-crafting, thus, developing a liberated and relevant language, loyal to values of design, beauty and esthetics, while preserving old techniques alongside new technologies. By walking this path, I take part in a broad cultural and artistic dialogue".
