I live with my family in Switzerland.

I am a trained feltmaker. After years working with wool, I started to

add tiny embroidery ornaments onto my felt pieces.

So the embroidery became more and more important in my work.

Now I still use my own handmade felt made of wool and silk as a background

for my embroidery pieces and also for my jewelry.

I only work with natural fibres, such as wool, silk, linen and cotton.

For the jewelry I prefer to stitch with hand dyed silk ( some silk threads are plant dyed) because this threads have the most beautiful colors.

Sometimes I add turquoise beads. turquoise is my favorite color...maybe it shows up in my jewelry...

...and yes, I admire Frida Kahlo
