About me

Having devoted very happily to a technical profession for more than 35 years, belatedly I gave myself the permission to develop my artistic possibilities. I chose to express myself through contemporary jewelry, a journey I started on 2008. The results were very rewarding: I expanded my creativity and began to exercise the right side of my brain for the sake of my well-being.
