Becoming a Jewelry Artisan
My career as a goldsmith began at my brother’s jewelry workshop, where I gradually learned the trade while earning more responsibilities. Experimenting with jewelry design, I began to create unique artisan jewelry, focusing on hand engraving techniques.
Fascinated by the ancient art of hand engraving, I explored its artistic possibilities, perfecting my craftsmanship by learning a variety of engraving styles. The inspiration to create carved rings, handcrafted pendants and handmade earrings that blend classic decorative themes with modern jewelry design led me to the art of gun and knife engraving, with its rich and delicate scrollwork.
A Collection of Hand Engraved Jewelry
I started to draw organic patterns, trying to crystallize the ornate drawings into clear and distinct elements, suitable for the miniature scale of jewelry design. Under a microscope, diligently hand engraving on sheets of brass and sterling silver, I eventually achieved a dramatic sculpted look with graceful, delicate motifs. Later, I completed the engraved jewelry pieces by gently highlighting the carved ornaments with flush diamond setting.
My artistic journey has culminated in a diverse jewelry collection which mixes the love of craftsmanship with a passion for design. Always looking for new ideas, my style continues to evolve both as a hand engraver and as a jewelry designer.
