Family. What are our bonds? Which one is the strongest?
Being an artist mainly working with silver I feel strongly about my favourite metal. Its plasticity, its many shades and the sensuality in the meeting with the skin always inspire me. The strongest bonds though for all of us humans are the ones to nature and family. No matter what paths we may follow in life we will always carry our childhood and our family bonds within. And wherever we choose to go we will depend on nature in order to survive. I want my brooches to be reminders of these bonds. I think we need it.
