My Work

The jewelry featured on these pages, are designed and individually made by me since 1980 and up till today. In my workshop I use raw sheets and wires of gold, silver or copper, to create the unique metal bases on which numerous layers of vitreous enamels are applied and fired. This process ensures that each piece of jewelry is an exclusive, handcrafted one-of-a-kind delight, made with the humane touch. Photos by C.Hv.

I am inspired by the nature, the seasons' ever-changing palette, and the heritage of Peoples crafts in metal and decorative art. The possibilities of diverse designs are enhanced by exploring different techniques, over the years, in the field of enameling and metalsmithing.
