N/A

Nature is the main source of my inspiration. All of my jewellery works are in some way
reflecting this fact and transforming natural elements into original artistic forms. Recently
I focus on reflecting microscopic cell structures that I rebuild as construction elements of
my jewellery pieces. Based on this reserch I started constructing some of my jewellery
according to the principles of Voronoi diagram. In all my jewellery designs I take great
emphasis on the precise technical execution. I mainly focus on classical goldsmith
technologies but in my latest projects I also get inspired by my design experience
and the possibilities of new industrial technologies.
