Heaven about his work: "The jewelry i present illustrate a poetry of memory, an escape from traditional, the conventional and the predictable.This jewelry is not a display of social status and makes no reference to ceremonial or religious status. I present to you object of desire, pieces of a wearable poetry.These works bring to you language of identity through delicacy, exoticism, tactility, sensuality and individuality. Each piece is a dream that we keep for our own. The energy, effort and commitment that we presented on each piece, with our artisan, done with all our love."

About material used and inspiration :"Appropriating the emblematic codes of classic jewelry, every piece has an ethereal presence, monochromatic yet weightless, their essence freed from unnecessary embellishment. Inspired by century vanity paintings, Victorian era aesthetic into Tim Burton humor flicks, give rise to beautiful creations that wouldn´t look out of place displayed in a baudelairian cabinet of curiosities. Every inspiration follows the natural rhythm of the season without ever forsaking our signature "Black 1920s Jet".The research of the very antique materials all over the world, 19th century ornament, unpolished semi precious stones, our sources of black and white 1920s jet mix with hand work from our atelier.Pieces after pieces, season after season is more like a painting of the past transform into modern painting."
