JEWELLERY MAKING PROCESS YOSTERHila participated in a student exchange program at Trier University of Applied Sciences with their gemstone and jewellery department, for Fine art degree in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Her time there was a big influence when it came to using art to create her jewellery pieces. She would seek materials and forms that maintain a dialogue between culture and material.
Living next to a desert landscape influenced and inspired her when it came to creating her identity as an artist. The roughness, textures and colours drive her when she designs.
