My interest in contemporary jewellery appeared as a natural change of scale, which I have the chance to experience in the larger, more dimensionally speaking, context of architecture. Each piece of jewellery that I imagine and create has its own micro-architecture which revolves around a specific idea, develops itself and, later on, acquires a material form.
The objects that I create are unique and contain a discourse of their own.
I prefer the consistency of metal – silver or gold – which can be emphasized by the various textures of wood, enamel and precious stones. The shapes and their proportions are always subordinated to a concept, and each element making up a piece of jewelry is chosen as part of a larger whole.
Currently living and creating my pieces in both Vienna, and Bucharest, I was born in 1984 in Bucharest and I graduated from the University of Architecture in the same city. I created my first piece of jewelry in March 2010 – a ring that I sadly lost, a month later in an airport.
