Colorful Enamel Jewelry

Creating is a very essential part of my life, I spend many hours of the day making things and thinking about making things;

I love colors and materials and always on the look for interesting combinations; I have studied art and silversmith and what I’m doing now is combining metal smith techniques with paint and found objects to make my jewelry.

I love to be in my studio and play; I have tons of jars containing different stuff that I’m constantly accumulating … my biggest jar is the bottle cap jar. Bottle caps have become pretty dominant material for me.

For my silver/gold jewelry I make the shaped bezels and then paint into them. My technique for the bottle cap art and my sliver/gold jewelry is the same – I paint the inside, sometimes glue tiny objects or papers and the add a layer of resin.
