These pieces, skulls and masks are the reflection of a dual quest for identity.  The identity of the objects and that of the artist (mine).

The combination of techniques inspired by folk art are made up of a blend of ancestral symbolic references and materials from my everyday life as well as relics and other sacred objects preciously compiled.

I become one with them; I wrestle to the rhythm of my inner voice, seeking answers in the objects I create. When I return from this trying journey, jewellery floats before me, as though emerging from Chaos, shouting its presence and demanding to know of me whence it comes.
