    Decorating our body is a primordial human desire. My first attempt to design a ring, an object with a purely decorative purpose, put me in front of a dilemma. A part of me wanted to reduce the form to the basics, as I usually do, whereas another part wanted to create decorative patterns, proper to a purely decorative object.
    I decided to merge the two approaches, however conflicting. The decorative pattern is placed on the inside, out of sight, but I know it’s there... Only a small detail is left in full view, hinting its presence to the rest of the world.
