1. How long have you been working on the work bench you currently using? Does it have a story / history? It has been using for 6 years. When I converted my workshop from a garage, I wanted to have a long workbench where possibly three people working together. Also, I love the oak wood, I bought a thick kitchen worktop and cut out from it. It is all hand made.

2. Which is your favorite tool, and why? My textured hammers. They are hand made and only I have those. I always gives some textured on a surface and I can say the textures from this hammer is my original. 3.  What is the jewellery making technique / process you enjoy the most, and why? I enjoy forming elements individually, which is a core work of my jewellery. However, my favorite process is burnishing edges. This is the last and a very important process; checking all the elements and linking while burnishing edges one by one. Also it is like a putting eyes to the doll, giving a life to the piece, giving a definition to the shape.

4. Anything else you want to tell us about your jewellery bench? My workshop is filled with dried flowers, dried seed pods, shells and things from the sea near by us. Recently, I am interested in mineral rocks as well. You will see these in my near future collection.
