"Breaking the rules and limits of the familiar, I develop my own techniques and tools to generate a new aesthetic. The explorative approach of technique and material activates in my process a never-ending experimental field of discoveries and innovations. Since my graduation project I work mainly with stainless steel and fine welding. Rather than try to disguise the welding dots, they have become a central element of my jewellery making."
