With this talk I hope to introduce you to my work, to show you something about the things that influence me and to explain something of my thought processes.

Almost always my jewelry has its roots in images from Art-history, in particular I have focused on the Renaissance and Baroque- periods. However I am not copying the items in the paintings or sculptures but I translate these images into my own contemporary context. It is important to me that my jewelry reveals this interaction between the past and the present. In this lecture I will show not only examples of my own work, but also examples of my sources of inspiration.
