About me...

One day, when I was about 6 years old, my grandmother came home with a gift for me. I still remember the awe and wonder that this little clay brooch in the shape of a butterfly with the bright colors, the black antennae and wings shimmering with incredible shades, had created in me. I never wore it but instead placed it back in its box so that it would not get ruined. I like to think that it was that moment which discovered and released in me the great passion for jewelry. I think these are the moments which create people.

 

After studying jewelry, a degree in Fashion Design and work experience at a large jewelry company, I decided to fulfill my dream: to start my own business.

 

My creations are a continuous search for colors, shapes, but, above all, emotions. I would want that my creations would be a reflection of me, expressing the joy, passion and imagination with which they are created. I try to still see the world in the eyes of a child and for me to create is like playing a game.

 

That beautiful butterfly with its luminous wings and its incredible shades of color, still flies in my drawer....
