Creating jewelry and being surrounded by colorful lights is what makes me happy! When I am in my studio, I constantly explore and experiment and I relish the challenge of executing the designs I imagine. Even as I keep learning new metal smithing techniques, there is always something I want to do that is beyond the knowledge I have acquired so far. Besides, my curiosity tempts to experiment with new materials.
The sparseness of 29 years lived in communist Romania is somewhat manifesting itself in the apparent simplicity of my work. I endeavor to create jewelry that has clean lines and is architecturally structured. Some of my pieces delineate a volume with metal, concrete, and gemstones, others are kinetic, and some can be combined to achieve a different look every time they are worn.
