In the field of jewellery she is known for Baroque and unique, flamboyant and theatrical creations. Jewellery statement, custom made.

"One cannot wear a painting. One cannot wear a sculpture. But one can wear a jewel of art. For centuries, famous artists, from Picasso, Braque, Ernst, or Salvador Dali, to John Chamberlain or Anish Kapoor, have created jewellery as well, genuine works of art. The art jewellery is a form of expression, both for the artist and for the one who chooses it. It reveals the personality and strengthens it, opens a doorway towards the inward. A pure blood artist, graduate of the National University of Arts in Bucharest, with a series of personal and group exhibitions and many awards, she has works of unprecedented force, rarely encountered in jewellery.
Made of cut, melted  metal, vivid silver drops, crystal and semiprecious stones, her works live intensely, vibrate, speak with imperial air, backed by impetuous modern touches, they step out of the ordinary and, in any case, cannot leave you indifferent". - Ioana Romana Laurentiu
