I want to make jewellery that exists only once in the world and that is not ready-made. For people who are worth it and love individuality.
It is important to me that my jewellery polarises. That the viewer deals with it and develops his own opinion.
Often I would like to make a statement with my jewellery, as a painter would like to do with his picture. I would like to paint pictures with them.

So I also like to use materials that other people wouldn't even consider as jewellery, such as nuts and screws, bones, doll heads, glass eyes, branches and twigs, stones and snails, motherboards and much more.
Furthermore, I also create recycled jewellery from disused or broken jewellery and watch parts, crown corks, cans and whatever else accumulates and can be processed.

As main technique for the jewellery production I use the Bead Embroidery - or also pearl embroidery. Pearls and the materials mentioned above are embroidered on a fabric base. With this technique the imagination has almost no limits and you can even work in 3D.

As the winner of three design awards, I have been confirmed that it pays to stay true to your ideals and go your own way. That despite the very special design, there are still people who appreciate art.
Since the buying mentality of the people is unfortunately more and more directed by the media into a corner that makes it almost impossible for artists to live from their work, this confirmation was very important for me.

Again and again I like to explain the difference between a cheap work produced in mass and on an assembly line and a work that gets character and value from an idea, from a sketch, from the meticulous selection of materials and the elaborate production by hand.

In each of my jewellery pieces there are several days to weeks of work, which cannot be said of the offers of well-known retail chains.
I live for the unusual and like to pass it on.

Many thanks (^_^)
