Jewelry

I have a passion for « ethnic techniques » from around the world. I am fascinated with the know how, the transmission of the craft and the transformation of raw or recycled material into beautiful ornaments by gold and silversmiths of those different countries.
Stamping holds a special place in my heart; it is a technique that can be done anywhere. I have been using this technique for over 20 years and developed my own form of stamping by creating patterns that filled the entire piece of metal. Over the years my stamped design evolved; my recent pieces are made of those patterns that are then anticlastic shaped(that give a confort fit to the pieces) into bracelets and rings. “Stampclastic” as I call it is a tribute to all the jewelers around the world who transform any old piece of steel into tools or any piece of metal into beautiful jewelry.
