Shapes, colours and scents of nature are the inspiration for my creative work. With my jewellery I would like to share beauty and harmony, through which one can draw strength for our everyday life. My creations often have a symbolic value. I strive to use different flower buds, seeds, spices and gemstones that are transformed into unique powerful objects.
Pepper, for example, was so valuable a few hundred years ago that the berries were worn as a "pearl" necklace, strung on a gold thread, by the ladies of high society. This inspired me to make necklaces with mustard seeds, pepper berries or grape seeds.
Every spice has its own story and a very special effect that can be transferred to us.
"... if you have faith as small as a mustard seed..." (Matthew 17:20)
The pendants and earrings made of cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla remind us of the Christmas season, but they could be also a very special gift at any time of the year. When they are worn, they give a soft aromatic note.
River stones also inspire me, especially when I hollow them out. Through this removal of matter, an empty form is born, at once it is filled with new meaning. In combination with precious stones, gold leaf and antique objects, new living beings are created.
Thank you for your interest and you are welcome to visit our workshop by appointment.
