The look ‘High-im­pact jew­ellery. I am in­ter­ested in cre­at­ing pieces that reference the past, but rein­vented in a mod­ern way. I grav­i­tate to­wards ma­te­ri­als that have a feel­ing of his­tory, such as old mine-cut di­a­monds and an­cient ro­man and Greek beaten gold.’

‘Beaten gold. I love the feel­ing of it be­ing worn and loved through time.’ Phi­los­o­phy ‘The an­cient Ja­panese aes­thetic of wabi-sabi, which sees beauty in im­per­fec­tion. Ev­i­dence of the hu­man hand in the mak­ing of my jew­ellery is preva­lent in each of my de­signs for this rea­son. I want each piece to be a tal­is­man for the wearer and com­mu­ni­cate a per­sonal mes­sage as well as cre­ate a con­nec­tion to the uni­verse.’
