WOODEN JEWELRY

I trained as a master cabinet-maker and successfully completed master classes at the Higher Technical College in Graz in metalwork, carpentry and interior design. For the past 10 years I have been making individual jewelry, objects and furniture.
I am passionate about creativity and perfection is my philosophy – although I do not consider myself perfect. My unique pieces combine very different materials such as wood, metal, plastik or paper. The form is simple, the surfaces are finely polished or hammered to appear archaic.
Every day I’m on the look out for new, but old precious items, that I find among rubbish, in dusty cellars or in nature. Inspired by higher powers I conjure up original objects with soul.
