Nothing in life is a coincidence, although when I started to work in metal I thought it was.
Not anymore, metal for me is like my skin, I can feel it, sense it, it speaks to me. This is why I love making.
To me all the processes are an adventure, melting, bending, hammering, connecting it all together, and in the end I encounter a piece that has become “alive”.
When I began, it was a pleasure for me. Although soon I realised that I had to share it. It was hard at first, giving away what seemed like a part of myself, a part of my heart. That’s why I make jewellery now. For the people that really value that part of me that I have let go, and appreciate that piece of life I have given.
If you ask me what my favourite tool would be, what inspires me, what makes me do what I do, I could only say metal, and more importantly, silver.
The freedom is being able to choose within the infinite spectrum of process, allowing me to be myself and put my heart into everything that I do.
