Values en norms are the starting points of my work.

Values and norms can vary a lot with faith, our upbringing and socio-cultural enviroment.

Norms can provide comfort but can also have quite a restraining effect.

Out of these values and norms I try to develop jewellery that makes a strong statement about evaluation, about overcoming prejudices, about appreciation and opening someone's eyes.

Appreciation? It is something that we all need. It is pure, genuine and gives you comfort. What's better than to received a little compliment, and knowing that you are appreciated!
