Who am I?

I live in Geneva, the famous international city of Switzerland, surrounded by magical mountain scenery. The closeness to the Lake Leman creates an inspirational atmosphere for new ideas in view of my jewellery. I enjoy the creation handcrafted design of limited series or pieces “one of a kind”.

My textile diploma I have received from the college of design in Hamburg. First, I worked as a designer in the fashion printing industry in the southern part of Germany. Nowadays I create textile jewellery or small series where I integrate textile structures in precious metals. I had started by transforming hair-thin metal threads into wearable textile sculptures. More recently, I have developed textiles constructions like knit or crochet in fine silver thread that I fuse with silver plates, known as Keum-boo. To integrate colours I am using enamel or biopolymère resin coloured with precious pigments like the Medici RED.

I am participating at various exhibitions like “Design is in the house” in Mont-Pèlerin organised by Oliver Schneider and Patricia Pittet and the “Marché de créateurs” in Geneva. My necklace “Medio” has been chosen by the association FormForum to present different Swiss designer at the ”Designer Saturdays 2016”, currently I am participating at the POP UP STORE “SwissDesign Market” in Bern until 30 April 2017.
