Welcome to my world
Conscious, adventurous and sculptural, that’s how I would describe my jewellery. Expressed by mixing gold, diamonds and semiprecious stones, with ostrich eggs, scarab wings, tahitian pearls and 40,000 year-old mammoth tusk.
My continuous search for new materials made me discover the beauty of imperfection. I’m embracing nature’s irregularity by using extraordinary, pure materials such as the most amazing baroque pearls and gems with inclusions - art pieces on their own. I try not to look at the obvious, I see nature in a broad sense. The feeling of an unknown world triggers me to look further. I’m a sculptor by profession and in my perception every jewellery piece is a miniature sculpture.
Pure craftmanship, nature and other cultures inspire me but true inspiration is to be found everywhere. The most smallest of details often stimulate me to start a new collection. For example the marks on a tahitian pearl form a star in a galaxy seen on the surface of that pearl. Also, opals form the centre of a spacious ring by just being an opal.
I believe real luxury is something powerful and compelling, something rare and special that isn’t ubiquitous. As a designer I try to tell the story of my pieces. Being a co-founder of Auverture, I help to discover unusual luxury pieces and specialize in unique, designer fine jewellery, dreamt up by artists and brought to life by skilled craftspeople in under-the-radar ateliers and workshops, scattered across the globe. I want the wearer to understand how a piece of jewellery comes into being and I want the wearer to work with a jeweller to create a personal piece that’s truly unique.
