Unable to find his ideal jewelry, he started making his own while working as a buyer.
In 1995 DETAJ was launched.
The creative process always starts by developing a feeling for a material, by endless trials, making the most of the metal properties.
Away from decorative concerns, the goal is to find some beauty in the functionality and structure of objects.
All DETAJ jewelry is handmade in his workshop, regardless of gender.
"WE FIND BEAUTY IN FUNCTION AND STRUCTURE.
WE SEE BEAUTY IN BOTH CREATION AND DESTRUCTION.
WE CAN SEE GOD’S BEAUTY IN RUBBLE.
TINKERING IS SYNONYMOUS WITH POLISHING.
KNOWING THE PAST IN SYNONYMOUS WITH KNOWING THE PRESENT.
BEING AVANT-GARDE IS SYNONYMOUS WITH UNDERSTANDING THE CLASSIC.
EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW-STANDARD."
