Statement

I grew up on a secluded farm and from a young age I collected all kinds of materials I found in the fields. I collected seeds, Dried fruits and anything that was thrown away and I liked. Later after studying goldsmithing in New York, I started to create gold jewelry and at the same time, I continued to create jewelry from the natural materials I collected. I really liked the combination of the gold and the precious stones with the simple materials. The materials themselves, without the combination with the expensive materials, said nothing to anyone. Creating a magnificent piece of gold jewelry is one thing and creating a magnificent piece of jewelry made of materials with no real value, is a realization of passion that does not leave me. In fact, you could say that I am able to create a piece of jewelry from almost any casual material, exercising my imagination.
