They started out as a simple piece of silver, cut and engraved and slowly become more elaborate. They got better, piece after piece, becoming bigger, more intricate and beautiful over time.

What you see now is the result of thousand of hours spent perfecting the technique combined with my passion for art and a life lived working with metals. Check out my previous works here.
