My work comprises mainly brooches and necklaces made out of various designs of silver and gold chain alone, or chain attached onto a copper mesh base which are then enamelled. Even though I have endless sources of inspiration, looking into ancient Greek and Cypriot Jewellery had a tremendous influence on my work. The unconventional process I follow in the making of my jewellery is a product of many months of experimenting with sifting and fusing enamels, which resulted in me pioneering a unique method of fusing enamel on a movable base (chain). My aim is to try and stretch the boundaries of what can be achieved with glass powder as a medium, thus introducing a unique way of enamelling in the contemporary jewellery world as an alternative to what is already out there.

I agree- there was good work at SCHMUCK, but an overwhelming amount of not-very-inspiring jewellery, too. I thought the Talente show had a much better quality of work, over all. Did you go to the opening for Karl Fritsch's curated exhibition on Friday night at the Pinakotek der Moderne? I think that was one of the big highlights of the whole event for me- and I agree with you, it was also really good to meet other designers and makers and talk about nothing but jewellery for days at a time!

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here.

All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all".
