I view jewelry as a sculpture that represents the wearer’s personality and culture. Through jewelry design, I express my imagination while combining my passion for sculpture and industrial design. Drawing creative inspiration from natural and organic shapes, my aim is to create clean, elegant designs that focus on bringing out the intrinsic beauty of gem stones. I enjoy the complete development process, from concept to sketch, 3D modelling and finally to the production.
