'At the moment I believe that it is impossible to understand jewellery by the means of words. I regard jewellery to be a purely visual and tactile media defined by it's phenomenology and as such only capable of communicating symbolically.
  Jewellery is it's own explanation. If I have to say something about jewellery it must be via a metaphor.
  A piece of jewellery is like a keyhole situated in the wall of understanding ourselves. Looking through into and across time and culture.'
