ethical production within the context of her practice. Her
aim is to show jewellery as an adornment, which instils power
and confidence to the wearer.
Deconstruction – construction, new materials –
found objects, old beads – vintage findings make an

techniques influence her approach to design. Furthermore the
design process is nourished by her curiosity and desire to

Renaissance portraits of noblemen and offers multiple possibilities
of styling to the wearer. They can be worn as whole statement

leatherworking, textile and jewellery techniques.
