I've always been painting and studied painting in Nice/France and Berlin/Germany. You can see my older works in my 2 painting websites www.franzainal.com
Some years ago I did a lot of enameling and some painting on silk. Then I painted more and more and didn't have much time to make jewelry. Last year I decided to start again as I was missing this kind of creation. I Hope you'll enjoy what I create now.
I enjoy bargain-hunting in flee-markets and jumbles to find interesting things that I include in my jewelry. I turn objects away from their first destination and give them a second life: cases, gears and mechanisms of watches and clocks, electronic circuits and their interesting graphics, parts of broken jewels, vintage pearls and buttons. I walk along the beaches near my home and pick up all kinds of seaglasses and shells with their beautiful structures and mother of pearls.
I love to work with metals (copper, bronze, brass, silver), resins, precious stones, sweetwater pearls, cristal beads and enamel. I paint miniatures in watercolor on vintage ivory from old piano keys or with enamel colors fired on enameled copper.
I like all kinds of styles, and so I created several lines of jewelry you cansee dispyed together.
