Everytime a jewelry piece is worn, it could be dressed up with flowers found in the garden, in the street, in the fields...

Silk and metal will keep the trace of living flowers, used to give life to the art piece. They will soak up perspiration liquids and fluids.

These jewels are meant to live together with their owners.

Inspiration started with ancient jewels, mixing shapes and techniques coming from different geographical areas and times. Etruscan and Byzantine echoes are the strongest. As a shroud found in an untouched tomb, it’s mysterious where and when it belongs, unless you analyse the traces and the surrounding remains.
