– Original and organic design
I do try to make jewellery that has a unique, original design, one of a kind, often with a distinct organic style. I like to combine several metals, simply to make use of their different colours. Thus this craft to me is an ideal way of combining my talents as a painter and sculptor.
Making ornaments that are specific to an individual is my forte and I do particularly enjoy it. It does set me a frame for my work within which I have to find the ideal solution.
In a way jewellery is functional since not everything suits every occasion. However it should essentially be a decorative way to enhance the bearer’s personality. I do not believe in a qualification like precious or semi-precious regarding stones and metals when it comes to jewellery making.
A harmonic relationship beween the design and the materials chosen is what matters most.
Amongst the inconsequential things in life jewellery is certainly one of the most beautiful ones.
