My work mainly consists of conceptual unique pieces from which
I develop small series with bold and edgy pieces.
Carefully hand-carved from balsa wood and meticulously coated in various materials, from 24kt gold leaf to various pigments and paints, each piece is one-of-a-kind and each facet, bump, scratch or texture makes up its unique character. The use of balsa wood allows me to create bold statement pieces that are nearly weightless and comfortable to wear.
I was born in Luxembourg. After obtaining a degree in Three-Dimensional Design at the University of Portsmouth, England, I continued my studies in Contemporary Jewellery at Alchimia, Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence, Italy with Prof. Manfred Bischoff and Prof. Ruudt Peters.
Since 2009 I am living and working in Vienna, Austria, as a member of Atelier STOSSIMHIMMEL, Studio for Contemporary Jewellery.
