I trained as a goldsmith at Vakschool Schoonhoven and specialised in jewellery design at Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
My works feature nylon thread. I transform this straightforward material into intricate, flamboyant pieces.
I like to restrict myself to one specific material to explore its full scope.
A wide range of techniques, from melting to connecting and flattening, result in artfully detailed networks.

I am fascinated by the processes involved in making a new creation.
Necklaces, brooches, rings and various vessels, opaque or in progressions of ethereal hues: each item is an experiment in transparency, structure and scale.
The jewellery may look fragile as glass and is light as a feather, but the material and design are solid and strong.
