After graduation I did not start designing and making jewelry right away; that time my interest in design was sleeping and waiting for the right time. At university I studied photogpraphy, journalism and sociology. I worked as a journalist for 10 years, and 8 years as a sociologist: for years I was working in both professions at the same time. I feel lucky, because I had the chance to work at the best places, and I learnt a lot from my bosses and collagues.
