Lacuna is a space between elements
A quiet elongation between one musical note to the next
A gap in the text that leaves room for imagination
I see my jewels as unique three-dimensional objects, each containing the shell of an element that once existed… and now in its place, the lacuna - just a memory of what once was.
The unique shapes of my designs were formed as if I removed a “frozen moment” from a step in the design process. Space remains between the material that originally was and the shape that came to be. With your imagination, this space allows a glimpse into the elements that were whisked away and hidden during this intriguing “frozen moment”.
In each collection I use a variety of techniques and technologies, which give expression to the concept of my designs. I meticulously add textures, colors and finishes to the 3d prints and casted jewelry, so that the surface and interior spaces are decorated by the small details.
