Statement

I've chosen to make jewellery because I was curious. It's amazing what one can be willing to wear. The wonderful thing is that everyone can decide what bonds and limits exist with his/her work: I'm looking for mine. Materials, shapes, colors, memories, the mood of the day, anything can be inspiring...

I use different materials and techniques, from fur to reconstructed coral, from silver to enameled copper wire. The element that my pieces have in common is the inspiration: the awareness that people wear clothes, masks, accessories to cover and protect their bodies and, at the same time, to reveal, hide or disguise themselves. Jewellery can be instrumental in this process, so I use it as a medium to reflect how this process works.
