artist & maker

So how do I work? I like to collect things. My drawers are filled with experiments in technique, surface, form and color. Parts that I once made from metal, enameled bits, shapes that I cut out of paper, finds from nature and industie, images of flowers and leafs, but also of cranes and old shipyards. They reflect a fascination with the tension between the industrial and the natural world. I give them a space where they can get to know each other, I arrange and rearrange them, and this forms the basis of my designs.

I always love to explore new materials and techniques from diverse disciplines, always looking for new ways to bring color into the jewelry. Combining traditional materials like gold, silver and enamel, with industrial paint, wood and steel. Always aiming for jewelry that is strong and subtle, beautifully crafted and a pleasure to live with.

    Do you like my style? With great pleasure I will design a unique piece perfect for you. To celebrate a birth or anniversary, a piece fabricated from dear heirlooms or a special commemorative piece. How does it work? You have a look at the collection and we discuss your wishes and technical possibilities. After I will draw up a few ideas you can choose from. The fabrication of this piece will take up to 4 weeks.
