Each piece is a concrete expression of a fugitive thought and sets an intimate connection with its wearer.
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
The existence of different kind of standards to which jewelry pieces are reported is a certainty. They are determined by geographical area, cultural influences, message and human typology. Besides, there are our inner, personal standards which we take into account every time we express ourselves through jewelry. Roots, ancients, local symbols are part of the conceptualization process, and their interpretations are linked to these days habits and beliefs.

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I always hope to obtain an honest and direct feedback about my work, without using the online environment.

Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
Yes, of course. The passion for music, for harmonious moving, for colors and human's wisdom are always there, inside the final piece.

The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
Work: Gaudi's work, all I could see until now.
Book: A Confederacy of Dunces  / John Kennedy Toole.
Film: Shutter Island.
City: Barcelona.

A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
Sincerely? Romania :)

Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
There are so, so many of them, I just haven't enough space to write their names here.

What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction? 
A brooch, first piece of my new collection. I am happy I managed to bring it into the real.

Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
I do, of course. We all have to get informed, isn't it? It helps you to be aware of the rest of the jewelry world, the trends, and happenings. But when it comes about inspiration, we should talk about a personal way of interpretation. We maybe see the same things, but we should be able to express our feelings in our unique way.

Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes, it's a good thing to know what others believe regarding your work.

What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?, What do you expect for?
Somehow, in a personal manner, of course, this whole inside light is going to be poured into my (and hopefully your) future.
