My jewelry is defined by the reinvention, transformation, recycling and reuse of common and industrial materials. It is in accordance with the genre of "poor jewelry", which places no importance on preciousness and eternal preservation but stresses the communicative potential of the work - the idea dominates the craft.
The making of jewelry evolved from my interest and background in fine arts (painting, fiber sculpture, mixed media, etc.). I strive to create inventive pieces of jewelry while I continuously explore a variety of materials.
Most elements are attached to each other by wire. The wire is both functional and an element of design.
