Intro
The relevance jewelry can have for a person is important to me.

Statement

Our profession consists of a lot of different facets. A fundamentally important facet of my work is the material. I like to use material that is not common within the jewelry field and not endowed with the traditional value that people expect from jewelry. PVC is a material I have already been working with for several years and the shapes I make are built up exclusively of small (punched out) circles of this material. Different treatments yield a variety of expressions. The properties of the PVC as well as the applied patterns and structures create confusion as to the consistence of the jewelry. Perception starts to fluctuate, heaviness turns into lightness, cold seems to be warm while hardness softens. With the PVC, it is the theme I want to deepen that dominates the result.
Otherwise I choose the material depending on how far its properties determine the possibilities of expression. The relevance jewelry can have for a person is important to me, which is why wearability is another fundamental facet of my work.
