Jewellery is an object of value. This is the single most important notion in my work as an artist-jeweller.

An investigation of the meaning of 'value' is integral in the work of goldsmiths such as myself. What is the real meaning of value for human beings? This question, always present in my mind, is what drives me to keep creating jewellery.
