Having her own independent space where she can make, sell and meet customers is her dreamed place. Her business is all about designing and creating original and contemporary jewellery. The basic concept of her work is to express and emphasize the beauty of different colours and the influence they have on our lives. She applies different patterns and textures to her pieces often simplifying a shape. She most enjoys working with the liquid colours as they help to form unpredictable patterns, which only makes each pieces more bespoke and unique. She likes to be spontaneous in her work.

She creates the pieces always visualizing its potential owner wearing it and so she imagines a woman who is confident and aware of her femininity, a woman who is brave and wants to celebrate the life every day. She is a strong believer that a jewellery can positively influence women’s mood therefore can be very powerful tool. She believes every woman should wear jewellery on daily basis and advice not to stick to one favourite piece that fits with majority of outfits but try to change and celebrate the beauty of colours.
