In my designs, I enjoy exploring the geometric structures and patterns embedded at the core of all living forms. I apply this to wearable objects, to create delicate, simple, and reproducible jewelry pieces. These explorations combine with my inspirations and my industrial design background and shape my designs.

My jewelry pieces, affectionately called Geoms, are lovingly handcrafted, combining two-dimensional bead-work and three-dimensional beading, in silver and/or, glass bugle beads, threaded together with a nylon thread. To this medium, I sometimes add Swarovski crystals, glass marbles, leather thread and silver chains.

“Jewelry, especially beaded jewelry, has symbolism and meaning. It means different things to different people, and throughout history, it has been more than just wearable art.” Anon.

I also love to work on large-scale delicate and intricate handmade wearable contemporary pieces that are more theatrical. The humble glass bugle bead is an element that supports the exploration of geometrical patterns and structures.

The act of doing, by handcrafting these geometric patterns and structures with little elements (the beads) and a continuous uniting thread, emphasises the Interconnectedness and the omnipresence of sacred geometric patterns and structures, and acts as a reminder of our relationship to the whole.
