Statement

For several years I worked as theatre costume and accessories maker, creating also a wide range of jewellery for stage use.
I developed a strong interest for contemporary jewellery and I dedicated myself to it.
What characterized my early work was the use of very thin metal sheets and wires, experimenting with hollowness and fullness.
In later work, I started using even thinner metal sheets, as if working with paper sheets, creating pieces that were voluminous and light at the same time.
My more recent work is characterized by having more solid looking elements and also by the introduction of color, not previously explored.
