The Bubble Gum collection features jewellery in precious metal modelled into sculptural pieces of art. As stated in the name, the design has a touch of humour referring to bubble gum stretching between the fingers and casually leaving its imprint.

Sustainability and recycling are dogmatic to modern man. This also applies to the goldsmith to whom all waste is precious – and can be of use.
