The most fascinating in jewellery is experimenting with form and new materials and the awareness, that object, which has much less size than sculpture or picture can contain many contents.

Personally I think that jewellery is not only a craft - which constantly I am learning, but also art, design and fashion. I support conceptual jewellery but not deprived of its practical function. In my searches I am trying to use new, unconventional materials, however not forgetting about nobler materials, typically for jewellery, as silver, gold, or noble stones. In my opinion it is exactly joining seeming contradictions, is giving the most interesting effect.

A good piece of jewel is like a good piece of music... both generates the same emotions in viewer/listener...
Emphatically Acid Jazz is not for everyone... the same refers to my jewels...
If my work can rise intense emotions for at least 1% of the public... then I feel gratified...
Jewellery is magical... Have always been. When I create a jewel I feel like a magician... I feel the power going through my whole body and soul… the magical energy… Which in the end is given away to the piece.
Whenever I work, I try to cut myself totally from the reality that surrounds me… I believe this is essential to create a REAL object carrying a True Word…
