"My long background as a craftsman can be seen in my work even today. The manufacturing steps that require precision and perseverance, for example in my pieces made of glass beads, are a rewarding and enjoyable way of working for me. It’s important to me to make my jewellery from start to finish myself, and precisely with handcraft methods. Many work steps that seem monotonous and require long-term repetition work for me like meditation. One by one, I tied the glass beads in place with a crochet hook, so that the whole row of beads represents my breath and the time I have been able to spend working on the piece."
