I am a Goldsmith from Berlin/Germany, now living in Missoula/Montana. I love colors and finding interesting combinations. Shapes also fascinate me, especially organic figures shaped by the patient work of water or wind -pebbles; trees; driftwood-, or the beautiful shapes of plants and sealife. That's why I mostly find my inspiration in nature. But also modern architecture, found objects such as rusty machine parts, or interesting silhouettes or shadows of structures are inspiring to me. Everything that was allowed to grow organically has a deep beauty to it. Also my jewelry was developed in a process that took time. My themes are the rhythms of the natural world and the beauty and comfort within it. It makes me happy to make jewelry and to make the wearer happy.
Join us for First Friday in June!
