Artist Statement

I create one of a kind jewelry that is completely handmade from start to finish.
I use the German technique of hollow building to produce layers and shadow.
Starting with flat sheet the metal is shaped and soldered.
I am both a purist and an experimenter. I hand make all my tools, melt and pour metal, make wire and sheet. I use experimental textures and construction to see how far I can bend the ideas of form.
I am involved in every process of creating a piece, doing my own gem setting and stone cutting.
I don't care about the time I care about the quality. About doing justice to the art form.
