” The name of my brand – Here&Now – originates from my credo: “To live life here and now”.
I love to combine different materials: glass, wood, solder, patina, paper, lace, feather, moss, metal, drift wood.
I find the beauty in simple lines, colors and forms.
I recycle and reuse things to create my jewelry. I think it is very important not to waste things but to find new way to use.”-Helena
