I am sure most people find it hard to speak about their own work, especially when it’s so closely tied to their emotions, feelings and experience. The jewelry I create is a product of long years spent as a traditional jeweler, decorator and painter.

Each piece is unique, as is the spark that inspired it: a splash of colour, a half-glimpsed fleeting shape, or a combination of the two. Ideas then materialize and find their final form on paper. On my quest for ideal work materials I settled for paper, gold wire and gems, opting for the lightness and malleability of paper rather than the hardness and rigidity of metal. To me, my art is a harmonious fusion of the experience I have gathered over the years and a constant search for new combinations and arrangements.

Papier-mâché as the main material lends Bodyfurnitures author jewelry its extraordinary lightness. Meticulously handcrafted from pure raw materials, each piece is distinguished by its authenticity, wearing comfort and immediate recognisability.
