Terra Incognita

Dérive (to drift) is a physical and mental act where mind and body merge, becoming one with the surrounding landscape on a wandering with no fixed destination. In this meditative state an authentic experience can emerge. In a brief moment of clarity, the landscape shows itself and exposes its hidden paths. A new wilderness unfolds, a second nature.  

Terra Incognita is a collection that investigates the historic use of jewellery as utilitarian tools and esoteric objects, rather then mere adornment. The handcrafted tools can offer protection, escapism and become part of rituals on a spiritual voyage in the unknown.

 “The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
–Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time

  • My work is a juxtaposition of traditional craft techniques, historical silhouettes with a contemporary approach. With inspiration drawn from art, architecture and poetry, I create a dystopic yet romantic vision with a melancholic feel. Every piece is hand made in the studio with an artisanal approach. I focus on details and unconventional surface treatments to create a tactile experience of wearing jewellery.
