The Blossom Chandelier, showing how crystal can be soft, romantic and organic, has now become a contemporary classic, sought after around the world.

When I first started to look at the crystal components, I saw that the shapes resembled leaves and flower petals. This reminded me of when I was young, I saw a frozen blossom branch after an ice storm. I felt the memory of the beauty of the frozen, sparkling flowers reflected in the crystal.

This led me to the idea of creating a Blossom Branch. As a shape this was exactly what I was looking for, because I wanted to break the mould of the classic symmetrical chandelier form and create something assymmetrical. Something that could release memories of romance through its sparkling beauty.
