"The jewels are my passion. Creating jewellery is making stories come true, it’s turning memories into beautiful timeless objects. Wearing a jewl makes you feel strong. A jewel is always a companion, it will make you more beautiful, more alive... My studio is my refuge; it is where I create, where I think and where I develop my work. It is my professional home. I feel extremely privileged when I'm there."
