I’ve been designing and producing jewelry for some 30 years and some
years ago I discoverd the Anticlastic Raising technique
(hand-hammered hollow jewelry) and just knew it was my thing. I had a
shop with a workshop inside and was dealing with tourists on the
island of Tenerife (Spain) for 21 years. Now living in southern Spain
I set up a workshop and started over again. Most of my jewelry is in
18k yellow or white gold, with or without stones or pearls, with many
one-of-a-kind pieces. I’m still amazed on the possibilities this
technique has to offer and I could hammer away all day!
