She has studied jewellery making at numerous institutions around the world and completed several apprenticeships under Master goldsmiths. She is thrilled to be a scholarship recipient of the Accademia Riaci’s International Art & Design Competition, and looks forward to learning from the Italian Masters in the year to come.
