It all starts with a success story. Let me tell you mine. I consider it a great success that I am doing the work I love, giving meaning to my creativity and ideas.
But my jewellery journey started in a completely different way. For a very long time I dreamt of becoming a photographer. I used to take an old camera everywhere with me, and then I used to do photo shoots (all my friends were tortured by my ideas and captured in pictures). I would fall asleep and wake up thinking about how I would be a fashion photographer, making art, having lots of assistants and just working all day long... It's all so glamorous -VOGUE VOGUE VOGUE.
It doesn't matter that I started making jewellery (still very childish and shy first steps) a very, very long time ago, I decided to learn photography. But before I even started, the reality didn't fascinate me at all. I immediately realised that it was nothing like Vogue...
Then I dived headfirst into jewellery. Metal art, to be precise. I never would have thought it could be so interesting and unusual. I think I found my calling and I enjoy it every day.
And my love for photography has remained to this day. Only the format and the subjects have been reduced to a minimum. I take all my own photographs. I live in the world I have created through the lens of photography. The best part of it all is that I can share it all with YOU!
I am very inspired by the lively interaction with people, the beautiful transformation of nature in all seasons, the books I read, the different music, dreams and travels. I work in different techniques, I love both enamel and ceramics. I translate ideas into shapes, colours, textures - jewellery. It is organic, sensual, deliberate, often replicating natural forms. That's why I like to create different earrings. After all, in nature there are no identical blossoms, identical days, perfectly symmetrical shapes. And so is a woman - wonderfully fascinating and unique in her imperfections.
Perhaps the desire and inclination to grope for hours, to explore, to test, to make something in concentration, is encoded in my genes. I was more attracted to drills, pliers and hammers from an early age than to make-up pencils or lipsticks.
If you want to get to know me, my jewellery speaks better with images than with words. I think my work appeals to a variety of different personalities. They are united by the courage to be themselves!
