Some words about my work...
My 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.
