Born in Gelsenkirchen (Germany) in 1981, since 2012 she lives in Munich. In 2008 she graduated as jewellery designer in Jewellery & Objects of Everyday Culture at the School of Design Pforzheim University. In her work she takes inspiration from the relationship between architecture and nature, from geometrical constructions and organic shapes, paying close attention to growth and change. As a 21st century goldsmith, she combines craftsmanship with the use of instruments of virtual creation as enriching elements for developing complex forms and materials. She uses oxidized silver, sometimes combined with gold, precious stones or plastic. The rings, symbol of her approach, present themselves as real sculptures.
