The Story

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.
