My mission is to create permanent pieces that add meaning and beauty to every day.

I’m inspired by vintage graphics and images from science and nature books. ​

Most of my work is made from silver and gold. For some color and sparkle I like to add precious and semi-precious stones.

I usually start by cutting shapes from a sheet of silver with the jigsaw. I bend or forge and solder the pieces and then I create different finishes: With steel wool for brushed finishes, or hammers, stamps and files for a more textured look.

After finishing a goldsmith apprenticeship in Germany I moved to the United States in 2002. I set up shop in my home and started selling jewelry to friends. I’ve been in business ever since.

​I love working on small things, trying to create perfect little objects.
