I Made this for You

The hows and whys.

The tin, it started with the material.

Then the idea was there, to make them large, light and extra-ordinary. The rest had to follow, the hows, but not the whys. They will be objects to cherish, to treasure, to make your own.

During this year-long project, I developed a way to cast in pure tin, with hollow forms and thin walls.


  • MA Degree


    School of Humanities


    MA Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery, 2015

  • Jewellery. Object. Research.

    I strive to make jewellery and objects that enter into a dialogue with the wearer. 

    I try to imagine how I can influence this interaction and enrich it. In this way I progress the construction of the object itself.
