What is your art or craft and how long have you been creating?
I am a jeweler and have been making jewelry for over 5 years. I started working with wire and crystals and moved on to metalsmithing after taking a course that lasted 1 1/2 year.
I have also been working with polymer clay for more than 7 years and now combine both claying and metalsmithing in several of my pieces to make interesting mixed media experiments.

I love your technique! What other things do you do besides creating?
When I am not creating, I work on my website, take photographs, shop for tools and supplies... I can spend hours looking for the right gemstone for a specific project!

What inspires you?
Ancient civilizations inspire me. Jewelrymaking has been around for centuries and I am always amazed at what jewelers from these old times could do, at the complexity of their work, at the techniques they used.
Nature is another of my inspiration. I like to look at flowers, leaves and animals and make my own interpretation in my designs.
Finally, I have always been inspired by geometry. I like simple lines: circles, squares, ovals... So many combinations that make clean, simple but striking designs.

Are there any artists that inspire you?
I love to read jewelry catalogs and magazines to see all the beautiful jewelry from master jewelers like Cartier, Boucheron, Tiffany... I can't really say that they inspire me, but they do make me dream.

What are five words that describe you?

Would you be interested in offering a special discount to the GiDu Design blog readers?
