Statement

I usually start creating from a natural material that I find strong and fragile at the same time. I like to accentuate both aspects in my jewels. The material does have things to say and I try to listen what it murmurs.

It is also very important to me to respect and preserve these materials as much as possible, by not breaking or drilling them. I elaborated my own assembling techniques borrowed from other crafts such as textile crafts that keeps the form and structure of each element. It is usually reversible, which allows the object to pursue another life after it has lived as a jewel.

I named my work "organic" with reference to the word "organ". A jewel is meant to be worn and then becomes an extra organ on the body : it influences the body's balance, movements and functions. It is vital and yet so fragile and can be altered during the course of its life. As an organ, it can also have an effect on connections with other people.

To me a jewel is much more than just an ornament. It is an essential message to others and to the world.
