I am a Budapest based jewelry designer, and I studied at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. I have been working as a jewelry designer since graduation. My works are mainly one of a kind or limited series jewels. While this is a solitary activity that I love, I enjoy working in a team as well. I have already worked with textile and graphic designers together. Since 2011, I have also been a designer at Eight Days Design, where we deal with object design and aim to redefine Judaism-related utility objects. In 2015, I was a co-founding member and organizer of the Jewellery Night Budapest event for three years. In addition to design activities, I also teach, currently at the Szimultan School of Art.


Being a designer for me is a bit of an extension of my childhood. Although it is a consciously and responsibly controlled activity, there is always a moment when you can ride a bike with no hands when surprisingly unexpected things appear out of your unconscious: images - or in my case- mostly shapes. This unpredictability makes the work really exciting and always makes me think about newer and newer objects.

I feel lucky because every day I spend designing is a pleasure. Even if I feel sometimes it may be challenging my desired goal, I end up making my pieces with joy and I find that sooner or later all my jewels find people who understand and perceive that joy.
