words about my work...
collection is made of forged silver buttons. I use the hammer in order to model
the metal. This action provides a soft appearance to my pieces, a sense of lightness,
even though they are made of a quite hard and heavy material. The buttons look
like petals, flowers, seashells or other organic shapes. They are meant to be
simple, joyful, sensual, colorful, innocent in some way.
I think that jewels
are supposed to give happiness and that their value is also an affective one.
My grandmother's button box was a real treasure to me as a child, and it still
is! That is the way my collection began, wanting to create a small treasure to
share with others.
