For me, being a jewelry designer means the ideal connection between technical ability and artistic creativity – from the idea and process to the finished piece. Even after 20 years of doing this work, I still love the moment when I've found the perfect piece of jewelry for each customer. I'm from the Ruhr Region of Germany.
To honor this region, I stamp every piece that leaves my atelier with a small winding tower.
