"My work is based on the theme "East meets West", which is the meeting and the interplay between materials and forms, methods, techniques and literature. In every step of my jewelry creation I combine the Eastern traditional boundaries and the Western modern boundaries, reaching the realm of where objects adorn the body using contrast, tension, absence and presence. Please discover and enjoy my creations"
