About my art

Each creation is as unique as a thought drifting by.  I value authenticity and exclusivity born from the heart.

So far, my jewellery has been made mainly out of polymer clay (most commonly known as "Fimo" by Staedtler). This is a versatile modelling clay with which almost any fantasy can be brought into reality.  Polymer clay turns into relatively hard plastic when cured at a moderate temperature.

 

More recently, being affected by the poor state our earth is in, largely due to human activity and pollution, I have been moving towards more natural materials like wood, paper and reused plastics.  These materials beautifully remind me of our own fragility and ephemerality, knowing that everything is forever changing and limited in time. Through my new range of creations,  I hope to awaken awareness of the fragile balance of nature, without which we cannot exist.

I like to combine unusual materials to create the effects and emotions I want to transmit. Finishing touches are particularly important, and most neck wires, clasps and accessories are hand made by me.

Each piece of jewellery is delivered in its unique handmade pouch, made with recycled fabrics and vintage buttons. I encourage you to use it as a storage bag for your jewellery.

My home art allows me to explore reality through yet another angle.  Bowls and vessels have the advantage of having several sides, insides and outsides, tops and bottoms, which constantly change depending from which angle you look at them, or under which light they are exposed.  My home decor is often a combination of polymer clay and glass or finely worked, but extremely strong paper maché.  As with my jewellery, particular attention is given to details and finishes.
