What first drew you to jewellery designing?
I was fascinated by the sparkles of the gemstones that I looked at when I was younger. I was really curious about how they worked, because these were natural materials that came from the mine.
Why do you place so much importance on natural materials in your designs?
I think it’s good for the Earth. It’s sort of like borrowing from nature. Using natural materials also makes each piece different, so everyone can own a piece that’s uniquely theirs. In future, though, I want to explore using recycled materials — recycled gold and plastic. It’s interesting.
