The moment I lit the torch and saw the silver glow, I knew I was hooked.
I have been an artist all my life, working with oils, watercolors and photography. One day I decided to take a silversmithing class, and have been working with metal ever since. Metalsmithing brings together my inspiration of many years and turns it into something permanent and wearable.
I find inspiration in nature, mythology archaeology and cosmology. My designs come to life much like my paintings, spontaneously and one at a time. Each piece is made by me in my sun-drenched, studio with birds singing and bumble bees buzzing outside. My cat and my plants keep me company as I make noise with hammers, melt metal with torches and marry stones with their settings.
Each and every stone I use is chosen by me for it's unique and interesting characteristics. I find beauty in imperfect gemstones and their natural inclusions. My fascination with stones began when I was a young girl, finding bits of amber on the Baltic coast, and seeing a beautiful sky in a tiny piece of turquoise.
I love to make jewelry that can be worn everyday and for any occasion. I create with the intention to make the wearer feel powerful and protected by the tiny treasures to be worn for years to come.
I hope you enjoy my work. I create each & every piece with joy.
