The following quote from DANIEL CHARNY, guest curator of POWER OF MAKING at the VICTORIA AND ALBERT CRAFTS COUNCIL EXHIBITION in London, captures what motivates me to make jewelry: 

"Making is the most powerful way that we solve problems, express ideas and shape our world. What and how we make defines who we are, and communicates who we want to be. 

For many people, making is critical for survival. For others, it is a chosen vocation: a way of thinking, inventing and innovating. And for some it is simply a delight to be able to shape a material and say: 'I made that'. The power of making is that it fulfills each of these human needs and desires. 

Those whose craft and ingenuity reach the very highest levels can create amazing things. But making is something everyone can do. The knowledge of how to make - both everyday objects and highly-skilled creations - is one of humanity's most precious resources."
