"Beauty" Might Be a Very Ambiguous Matter

For me, the word "beauty" is always elusive somehow or other. In other words, I'd rather create jewelry that deviates from "beauty" than what is just beautiful.It may be close to the feeling that I get attracted to rough stones and baroque pearls which have their original colors and shapes of their nature, or to the beauty that lies within the process of things like buildings decay over time and change their appearance.
Jewelry can bring out unique charm of the person who wears it and I believe that the encounters between such jewelry with people can "spark" something that is more extraordinary than the word "beauty".
