Statement

Goldsmith, the ― [ ˈɡəʊldˌsmɪθ ] noun, masculine | (Job title) Craftsman who makes jewelery or artistically designed objects made of gold or other precious metals. That´s the way it started. Since then I like to work with traditional goldsmith techniques and combine them with other elements, such as 3D printing. In the designs, I move away from the classic goldsmith work to develop new ideas with different approaches. I pursue new things and approaches, rather than sticking to old patterns. These approaches can be characterized by new shapes or materials. There are no limits to jewelry design, and that is exactly what drives me. I like to get people to leave their hustle and bustle of everyday life behind them and take a moment to see, feel, and interact with something beautiful and extraordinary. Often, jewelry pieces contain stories. The story begins with an idea which determines material, shape and size. Besides the technical precision, it is very important to me to ensure a precise implementation of this idea I have for every piece I am working on. My creations are made to be worn.
