What defines your style?
I like to work on topics such as my series names “Earth”, “Coalling Earth”, “Universe”, “Cables”,” Evil Eyes”, “Fertility”, “Sea Bed”. My latest collection called “Kinesis” is in silver 925, as I believe that everything and all of us are in a continuous motion. Nothing and for no reason remains still, as there is always growth.
What are your most commonly used materials?
Sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones
