I like to approach my work as a problem-solver. When designing jewelry objects, I begin by exploring the unique or unusual ways in which the piece could be worn, questioning what the piece could provide for the wearer apart from its aesthetic qualities. I challenge myself to look beyond the conventions of everyday jewelry by incorporating clever mechanisms in my designs that encourage the wearer to interact with the piece in more ways than one.
