"If I had another lifetime I might spent it in making jewelry. Large sculptures keep me busy and allow little time for making beauty in miniature - objects of art to wear. My other works, such as public sculptures, are situated in different parts of the world. Others are 'hidden' in private homes or galleries and after completion I seldom encounter them. But when in a street or restaurant, somewhere in the world, I see my jewelry displayed on the body of its owner as a statement of their choice; I feel the pleasure of a silent bond, a little secret shared with a stranger. It makes me as happy to see them wear it as I hope they are to own it". F.M.
