I think that there can never be a replacement for the coordination between the human brain and our hands. When I'm carving material by hand it feels like the material tells its own story, allowing me to create works that are unique and sculptural representations of my world - jewellery becomes a link between the perception of the world itself and the viewer. I think that both the sensual appearance and technical perfectionism are equally important.
