I aim to propose a platform for interaction through the pieces of jewellery I create to initiate and develop a bond with the wearer. Playing provides endless possibilities of escaping the ordinariness of everyday life and invites us to take part in unusual contexts, making us question the idea of reality. Since the notion of play enables communication of experience in a sensitive way, it carries the potential to link and harmonise the personal and the social body at the non-rational level.

Through free play and improvisation, we are able to connect outside of the physical known and access other spaces. I make jewellery that seeks to increase the participative role of the wearer in the work’s possible form, function and meaning, deepening in this way one’s own particular link with the piece.
