 2. How would you describe your journey as a contemporary jeweller?

  •       Completion of a 3 year Apprenticeship .E.Frey Master-Goldsmith,Pretoria,South Africa.
  • ·         Invitation by Co.Gueblin, Lucerne, Switzerland to join for an Internship in its Design  and Manufacturing Department

·         I work concept and theme wise utilizing sculptural and linear elements.

·         For example the “Space Invader Series”

Ring from the  Space Invader Series - "Liebes Auge"( loving eyes) 2014 -  14K gold - Zircon

Ring from the Space Invader Series – “Liebes Auge”( loving eyes) 2014 – 14K gold – Zircon

·         Majorly I work  on an assignment basis through my CAD drawings – love design and manufacturing techniques and the moment a piece is born.

·         I admire work done by artists with innovative /unusual /surprising design elements.

·         My favourite artists are – René Jules Lalique – Salavadore Dali (yes he designed a lot of fantastic jewelry) Reinhold Reiling – Bruno Martinazzi and Manfred Bischoff
