Statement

Jewellery is an expression of personal dreams, wishes and identity. Jewellery has become my language, my way of communicating observations, opinions and experiences to people all over the world.

Stone Poetry - A slice of home
As a child I hoped to become an archaeologist. I was fascinated by history and ancient cultures.
Another interest of mine, was finding fossils by the sea with my father. We often did, and when a new piece was found he would explain what kind of animal it had once been.
I was fascinated by these objects that kept a door open to lost cultures and time, I felt connected across time and cultures - so close and still separated. The brooches are questioning the matter of cultural identity. They are artificial fossils, referring to the culture that shaped me.
