FABRICATION THAT IS BORN OUT OF A PERSONAL NEED FOR STRUCTURE; REPEATING SHAPES THAT CREATE PEACE AND PREDICTABILITY IN THE DISARRAY THAT IS LIFE

I hand fabricate all my jewelry in my home studio in Northern Germany.

After years in the south of Germany and the U.S. , I am back in the north of my homeland. I create shapes out of sterling silver and copper that serve as settings for various materials or function as a canvas for gold and enamel. On my personal journey I walk the constant line between perfectionism and the attempt to embrace mistakes. A big part of my work is about encouraging people to look at things differently. By taking things out of their normal environment, I ask you to look closer and question what you see.

 In my current collection, I get my inspiration from the ocean, a place that has always been important to me. I collect different objects on the shore and turn these into jewelry, by sand-casting them in sterling silver. Along with pearls, amber and seaglass they become handmade pieces of jewelry in all sizes.

I am intrigued by the patterns, textures and almost abstracted shapes of these objects, so that the original shapes can often only be recognized after closely studying these pieces.
