In this collection of unique pieces I explore the potato in an unlikely way.
The objects thus created exude a subtle and strange beauty, but they also carry a meaning that I try to share.
With this collection I contribute to a better understanding of the natural and cultural elements of different regions of the world. The passion for travel meets the passion for jewelry in the sense that "these objects travel to the heart of transformation and metamorphosis of values." The potato then becomes a metaphor for belief systems, values … implicitly contained in our ornaments.
