I've always been amazed by the incredible diversity of life. For nearly
15 years, I pursued a career as a plant biologist, specializing in studying how flowers' shapes evolved over time.
After training at a jewellery school in Vienna, Austria, I decided to combine my passion for science with creating nature-inspired jewellery, using responsibly sourced materials. Through my jewellery, I hope to raise awareness of our precious and unique natural world, which has evolved over millions of years.

"Observe nature, study it, be part of it.
Protect it. Get inspired by it"
Every shape that surrounds me, especially natural ones, is a source of inspiration. I like to imagine designs while falling asleep at night.
This is where the work starts: drawing forms and motives until I get a satisfying idea. At this stage, I draw in a small book that I bring everywhere.
Next comes the technical part: selecting materials, creating a technical drawing, and meticulously planning each step of the creation process.
Plates and wire are shaped into geometric or floral forms, soldered, filed, cleaned, and polished. The final step involves carefully inspecting the finish under natural light.
My ethical commitments
I believe that the 21st century is the time for ecological concern and fair practices.
That is why I am committed to creating with respect for people and the planet, with transparency.
