Objects with a history have always fascinated me. For many years, I have been collecting items I accidentally find, like pieces with weather-beaten glass or old glass stops. I like to combine things that have a 'soul' with minimalistic expressive shapes, to form a new archetypical object.

I often regard this jewellery collection as perfect miniatures, or small sculptures. This way, they become an autonomous work of art.
It is always a challenge for me to put a story into a piece of jewellery - hence the title 'small objects – big subjects'.
Each object has its own background and interacts with the wearer. They become real pieces of jewellery once object and body form a unity, emphasizing the wearer's natural beauty and expression.
Pure shapes with a strong presence characterize this sculptural jewellery. Their clarity and aesthetics make these jewels not only a joy to behold, but objects that can be cherished for a lifetime.
