Contemporary jewellery with a hint of tradition. I use precious metals with emphasis on surface decoration and treatment as well as stones especially diamonds and lots of pearls - Tahiti, South Sea and Chinese freshwater pearls. From earrings to big neckpieces and head gear for brides.
I use traditional skills and materials, silver, 18ct. gold, 22ct. gold, coloured stones and diamonds. My jewellery is comfortable and uplifting to wear every day as well as on special occasions.
