My recent works feature nylon thread and I transform this straight forward material into intricate, flamboyant pieces. Necklaces, brooches, rings and various vessels, opaque or in progressions of ethereal hues: each item is an experiment in transparency, structure and scale. The jewellery may look fragile as glass and is light as a feather, but the material and design are solid and strong. I like to restrict myself to one specific material to explore its full scope. A wide range of techniques, from melting to connecting and flattening, result in artfully detailed networks.
