“I create functional jewelry using brass and magnetic clasps, adorned with metal clay sculptures. These pieces provide a sense of safety and confidence, always accessible to me. I wear them everywhere, whether I’m traveling, using public transportation, attending concerts, walking, or doing everyday chores. They combine art and practicality, merging sculptural expressions with wearable accessories. Each piece carries personal meaning, reflecting my emotions and experiences. Beyond mere adornments, these jewelry pieces become my trusted companions on life’s journey. My intention is to empower others, evoking strength and resilience.”
