She says about her work:
collect real objects and images, seized from my daily surroundings.
In fact, my studio is an endlessly growing collection of bits and pieces,
both visible and invisible, that become parts of a map I keep updating
My work is a treasure hunt among things and ideas finally fashioning
into pieces of jewellery made to be desired, worn, questioned, or loved."
