My work draws from my personal experiences. One day I began to feel I was in great pressure and this seemed to transform my whole body and mind. While I had generally seen life as light, delicate and colourful, pressure or anxiety turned things dark, stiff or tense. As a Jewellery artist I visualised that feeling in the form of a heavy, necklace pulling its weight down. I explored this idea by creating a series of pieces that aim at recreating that same psychological and physical experience. Working with materials such as wood, copper or resin has allowed me to express my ideas and create large size, strong and rough looking jewellery. However, while all my pieces are meant to be worn by the human body they, at the same time, challenge peoples’ expectations in terms of their weight. They aim at producing that feeling of heaviness or exhaustion that generally happens at difficult, critical times. All of my pieces are based on linear, irregular shapes that I create layer by layer.
