My jewellery are three dimensional forms that belong to and work with the body, not only because of the format, but how it feels to the skin, the weight of it or the sound it makes by moving.
I want to get a closer look, and focus on the small things, details in the nature like naked branches against a white sky or a dry straw of grass.
This is an endless source of inspiration and it is possible to just go on and on finding new views and angles.
I find it interesting how the shapes stand in proportion to one another and how new forms appear in the meeting with the body.
