Nature is a constant source of inspiration for me. Nothing can compare to the beauty and enchantment in the way a flower grows and unfolds, the shape and markings of a shell or the delicate design of an insect wing.

Flowers have always been of particular interest to me, and there are orchids, begonias, peonies, African violets and gerberas in my collection. I always strive to make the details as accurate as possible.

Other materials, such as shells, bone, roots and leaves have been incorporated into designs. The “lotus root” necklace in 18K yellow gold paved with orange sapphires, or the “acorn” earrings made of 18K gold and white South Sea pearls are examples.
