After being questioned, I had the desire to understand why I make necklaces that are so rough and almost 'nonchalant', with closures that are so precious.

After making 11 of them, today I've got the answer. Most of the time I am nervous, restless, agitated. Like clouds, lightning and storm. Like a boat at sea with high waves. In these moments arisen pieces that are huge, rough, dark, (let's hope that they have mysterious beauty!).But after these moments (days, weeks, in some cases I think years), come moments of grand peace, calm and silence. No noise can be heard, a total calmness, an emptiness that is full of peace and calm.

A total fatigue. In these moments a closure is made and in doing this, the calm stretches and then I rest. Moments like these are extremely pleasant.
