I have a innate love of ancient objects and a deep curiosity to understand the process of how they were made. Using ancient techniques, fine materials and a love of history; juicy gems and rich colors dominate my designs.I became fascinated to the point of obsession with the Etruscan process of Granulation, a process that involves tiny spheres formed under heat through colloidal adhesion, precisely placed on a prepared surface of the same material then fused with a torch. Granulation is a very time consuming process. The creation of unique pieces in precious metals is my passion!
