Statement

Glass and metal have held my attention for more than 15 years. These materials have embedded themselves so deeply in me, that all I do this think about new ways to bring them together. Most of my work is made from combining multiples of the same element. So much can be expressed by repeating a single element. My jewellery objects are made to be enjoyed and worn, they are spontaneous, colourful, quirky, and whimsical.

As a prolific maker and I am never standing still in one jewellery place for very long, I never want to stay in my jewellery comfort zone. I try to push myself to a place where I am uncomfortable, with no idea what I am doing so that when I eventually resolve the problems of the piece I feel an unbelievable sense of achievement.

A circle has no schuster-nicole-schuster-nicole-beginning-2016-2016, therefore no end. One piece always informs the next.
