Statement

My latest love in jewellery making is the old engraving technique called Guilloche. It is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern is mechanically engraved into an underlying material via engine turning. It is an extinct craft and I love to breath new life into it. When used in a free way the possibilities of creating new patterns are endless. Historically it was often used in combination with enamel, in some of my pieces I follow that tradition.
