Statement

Why Do I Make Jewelery?
To say it in a few words :
I love making things which are related to the body.
When I start working, I have intuitions, materials, desires and doubts. The work is the result of ideas that I could materialize and that became a project. I hope it is able to stimulate other’s emotions and open doors to their own imagination. A piece of Jewelery should provoke ! Provoke questions, provoke emotions, provoke desires !
