It is based on the knowledge of traditional gold-smithing techniques, which are being enriched with new technologies and experimental work procedures.

The main focus of the studio is the ring, which the author subjects to thorough research. He confronts the rawness of metal with refined morphology, structure and fragile symbolism. It analyzes the metal material and supports its natural properties or appearance of silver itself. Each hand modeled ring is a unique personalized piece of jewelry on the edge of contemporary design and fine art.
