Design/Expertise-related information

What technique(s) are you particularly focusing on?
I enjoy using mixed media for each piece, but I´m particularly fond of sewing, wiring, knitting and modeling epoxic and polymer clay. Something that has become a feature of my work is the addition of textile, objects or materials that are not intended for jewelry, so i have to re-think and adapt them for this new function. Also, I tend to use some techniques and processes used in the construction of objects such as shoes, hats and bags to create certain components and details for my bijoux.

Since when have you already been holding workshops?
Since 2006

What fascinates you about using SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS?
The incredible variety, quality and exquisite design of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS is always inspiring: It allows me to create even the craziest of my ideas. It's so funny that every time I open my boxes to get some crystals, I spend lots of time just admiring their beauty, and the way they reflect light!

What is your favorite SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS color?
It's so difficult to choose only a few between so many amazing colors! I love Pacific Opal, Black Diamond, Erinite and Crystal Bronze Shadow. I also like the mosaic and metallic colors.

What is your favorite SWAROVSKI ELEMENT?
If I had to choose, it would be the Swarovski Fancy Stone art. 4756 (Galactic Flat), Bead art. 5040 (Briolette), Pendant art. 6150 (Pegasus) and art. 6090 (Baroque) as well as Round Stone art. 1028 (XILION Chaton´) and of course Crystal Pearls.

What is your favorite design you have ever created with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS?
The Honeycomb necklace, and the whole Pandora and Materia Obscura collections, by Fou Fou Chat by The Terror Sisters

What are your hobbies?
Reading, watching movies, listening to jazz and rock music, and reading fashion magazines and blogs

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Fun, creative and intellectual

What would you definitely take with you on a lonely island?
A book, my tools, and a variety of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS; I think I'd have a great time discovering natural materials and mixing them with crystals to create wonderful and never seen pieces of jewelry.

What is the first thing at the day you usually do?
Say hello to our cats and fill up my kettle or coffeemaker...

What is your motto of life?
Life is not about the things you own; it's much about what you manage to do with the talents you're born with.
