Artist Statement:

My pieces respond to your glance with immediate look. Anything can be understood as an “objet trouvé”, that is made by wilfullness. The jewelry is thought for body in motion and can be worn in spite of its unyieldingness.

I´m not working like a traditional craftsman, but I´m using archaic and rudimentary technics of the craft to yield an individual interpretation of
treasure and exuberance.
