When I work, I give myself the freedom to choose the material, technique, and any other means so that they best serve the purpose of expressing the content of my message.

StatementJewelry is like a statement for me.
The very first contact with contemporary jewelry changed my understanding of the essence of jewelry at all, and the conclusions from this reevaluation became a kind of signpost for my artistic actions. Creating is like a conversation to me, thanks to it, I can communicate with others and with myself. It is a continuous puzzle-solving, analyzing issues, interpreting signs, absorbing, processing, and transferring energy—the continuous processes aimed at capturing an idea and closing it in the form of a jewelry piece.
When I work, I give myself the freedom to choose the material, technique, and any other means so that they best serve the purpose of expressing the content of my message. The material is not a determinant of value for me; therefore, I allow myself to use not only traditional materials but also those less associated with the art of jewelry. I strive to simplify as much as possible and minimize the final form. If I can give up something without harming the whole thing, I don't hesitate to do so.
The subjects for my art I take from all possible sources, most often from my surroundings. I react to events and try to define my attitude towards them, I organize my thoughts and translate them into the language of a jewelry object. The consciousness, which is based on the traditional understanding of jewelry as a purely utilitarian element, reveals its close ties with the body. This closeness is another value for me that I use to search for and give meaning. One of my favorite procedures is to use context. Sometimes even an ordinary decorative brooch, fastened to the lapel of a man's jacket, becomes an expression filled with essential content.
Jewelry provoking thoughts, evoking emotions that go beyond the aesthetic experience, and supporting the recipient in externalizing his or her own manifesto is of the biggest meaning to me.
