"What has always fascinated me about making jewellery is that you can be free to focus on small details and form, rather than just functionality. I studied to become an industrial designer and an interior architect, and I see that scaling and observing things has an important influence on the kind of jewellery I design. Jewellery has been an important means of expression for me since the age of 16, perhaps precisely because it is at the interface of a utility object and a small art object. In addition, making jewellery is challenging and difficult, there is a lot to learn every time, and I think that is one of the fascinating aspects of handicrafts, it challenges its maker again and again. In unique works, every small change brings new considerations to be solved. Making them is slow, and then also something more profound is born into each piece of jewellery.”
