Metal was my choice from the very beginning. I like working with silver and iron depending on the type of concept I am working on. Their characteristics and expressions are opposite. Dealing with gold is a requirement, it is sensual and lively, expression of joie de vivre, a wonderful material to work with. Iron is lighter, harder, au naturel, black, not precious, yet aesthetically inspiring. Both metals are good companions in everyday life – they become more and more lively and charming when worn. Finding an adequate way to work with these materials is a real Challenge.
