"My work is based on the theme "East meets West",

which is the meeting and the interplay between

materials and forms, methods, techniques

and literature. In every step of my jewelry creation

I combine the Eastern traditional boundaries

and the Western modern boundaries, reaching the

realm of where objects adorn the body using

contrast, tension, absence and presence.

Please discover and enjoy my creations"
