It’s the driving force that move us to a continuous research in making and thinking. Each work can please me in a specific moment and place.

Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
I do think standards are set in the jewelry field by the market and trends but I do not think jewelry generally speaking is standardized.
Jewelry can be the result of a personal research and preserve a unique aesthetic. Expressive cross-contamination of different artistic languages and many other disciplines occurs on many levels and the exchange of culture together with innovation can still bring to unexpected results.
With my work, I aim to be understood by everyone without many words and people are free to reflect their personal experience.

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
Every situation has different expectations but it's always about given and take and interaction. In these moments I can get new perspectives of my jewelry creations and refill myself with positive energy that helps me and my work to evolve. It’s always pleasant to listen to other people’s stories that jewelry has the power to raise.

Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
Architecture and social interaction inspire me. Graphic and design are part of my practice. When I make jewelry I always consider each aspect and detail till the moment jewelry reach the final customer. I love to make a product where the packaging and the presentation reflect the jewelry itself.

The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
Wildlife Photographer of the Year, a photography exhibition that shows at the same time the innate strength of nature and the power of the human eye. A single snapshot can tangibly report the reality we live in.

A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
Egypt, for his unwitting creativity in daily life. Hard to explain but worth to live.

Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot? 
Alexander Calder for his simplicity, elegance, and playfulness. Bruno Munari for his multifaceted creativity.

What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
Satisfaction is temporary. It’s the driving force that moves us to a continuous research in making and thinking. Each work can please me in a specific moment and place.

Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
Yes, sometimes Art Aurea and Current Obsession but mostly of the time, I use online platforms. It’s easier to be daily updated on what is happening around the world.

Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes, every time I can. I like to discuss with other colleagues but I also find essential to have feedback from people with different backgrounds.

What is your first thought when you hear the word Future? What do you expect for?
Future is tomorrow, surprise and coincidences. I have multiple expectations, maybe it’s the inability to decide or the flexibility to accept changes!
