" Since the early stages of my jewelry designing career, I have been searching for alternative ways to create jewelry, something different that would have represented our contemporary world that we live in, but would also have allowed me to maintain the final and reasonable price appealing, because I always considered myself as a metal artist and designer at the service of the public."
