I find working with my hands satisfying, and I enjoy creating
beautiful objects. I prefer simple techniques, and using my hands.
Knitting, crochet, and more recently, twining and weaving, form a
large part of my work. Apart from these, fabrication with soldering
and rivetting is my main construction technique. I set titanium,
niobium and shell in sterling silver. I get my titanium and niobium
colours by heat and anodising, then I use various grinding, punching
or painting techniques to create a surface texture. I try to make my
work wearer-friendly and comfortable as it is intended to be worn.
