About The Artist
I am a self-taught artist and just like everyone else, I have a personal story which is continually shaping and changing who I am and my place in this world.
What remains constant however, is my love of The Journey Through Life, and the embrace of my own evolutionary experience.
As it happens in life, major personal events, leaving the corporate world in Munich/Germany and a move from Europe in 2010 to the USA, forced me to change life & career. My husbands career made us move back to his home country. (I was raised in Augsburg/Germany and me and my husband lived and worked several years in the Netherlands before we moved back to the US ). I speak 3 languages, German, English, Dutch.
I always was creative but I cannot label myself, I paint, I play electric guitar, I work with graphic design software, I paint, I sculpture figurines, I work with metal-smith techniques and create jewelry. My first love was music - I played for many years guitar in German rock bands and at young age I discovered that colors, paint and sculpturing are just another way of expression and to connect me to my inner magical realm and feelings. Creativity is a sort of escapism to find meaning, satisfaction and joy.
I worked several years with polymer clay till I discovered metal clay and metal smithing – a new creative world of possibilities opened to me and I was hooked and I bought my first kiln. Now my focus is on designing sterling silver, copper and bronze jewelry combined with magical gemstones and crystals. To me handmade jewelry always carries some sort of magic.
My work is intuitive and visionary, I am inspired by ancient symbols, natural objects, and modern design aesthetics. old cultures, ancient ritual symbols, medieval and tribal jewelry, as same as by my surroundings and nature.
I enjoy exploring all forms and techniques in jewelry making. The beauty with any art is that you never stop learning, every day is a new lesson.
I love my husband and our funny dogs. We have a Schnauzer and 1 Jack Russell Terrier and a rescue Terrier mix - our funny beloved furry babies.
Beside handcrafting jewelry from scratch, I enjoy painting with acrylics and watercolors, refurbish small furniture and other small things I can paint on, playing guitar, gardening and I grow our own organic veggies.
I enjoy hanging out with my friends, love chill-out , ambient music, grunge music, hard rock, rock, R&B, some modern country and even classic music. I enjoy being at the beach, swimming, hiking, concerts, meditation, mountains, trees, mystic places and nature in general.

When you buy from my shop, you are buying a one of a kind handmade piece made by my hands, not something cranked out from a factory in mass quantities.
I am committed to environmentally-conscious atelier practices, such as recycled metals and using less-toxic chemical alternatives for my metal-smithing work.
