I create unique conceptual jewellery series from which I develop small collections and limited editions 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 with each facet, bump, scratch or texture making up its unique character.
I have a passion for large jewellery and with the use of balsa wood I can create bold statement pieces that are nearly weightless and a pleasure 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.
