is an expert for cutting precious stones and all kinds of minerals. Her reputation is due to her Free Form cuts, but she also masters the traditional faceting. She is an independent lapidary since 1993 and had no teacher at all. She started with a few tools found in a jewelers workshop. Short of coated drills and mesh she sent a picture of one of her Free Form cut gemstones to several dentists and got a bunch of used diamond drills.
Three years later in 1996 she got an honorable mention at an international contest of the INNUNG DER EDELSTEIN GRAVEURE of Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Only after this contest, she could afford professional equipment and bought a cabbing machine and a diamond coated saw. Today her services are sought after by professional gemstone dealers to cut their masterpieces.
She has been invited to several gemstone mines around the world, to dig her own rough stones. She demonstrated her carving technique in Tanzania, Germany, USA and during many exhibitions in Switzerland.
