My fascination for jewelry found its roots in my grandparents jewelry store.
I would study and touch the precious metals and stones for hours at a time.
At the age of 14 my father took me to a goldsmith club. I loved it.
My choice after High School suddenly became clear;
I graduated as Goldsmith at the “Vakschool Schoonhoven” and after this I completed my Fashion degree at ‘Gerriy Rietveld Academy’ in Amsterdam.
Soon after graduation I began working as a jewelry designer for several fashion brands.
7 years ago I made a worldtrip with my family and got inspired by seeing so
many different cultures, especially in Peru. Because of this trip I decided to start my own brand.
The Hermitage Museum asked me 2 years ago to design a bold modern Jewelry serie inspired by the ‘Jewels’ exhibition, and I started to work with recycled perspex. Since then I fell in love with this material because I can express myself by using beautiful colors in combination with my drawings.
I’m proud of my collabs with different Museums, because art is a big inspiration for me, and I donate a part of several jewelry series to great foundations because It’s important to give something back to society.
My perspex jewelry is locally produced and embellished by hand.
I use recycled perspex, the lasered parts are made in a workshop who work with a great foundation who help young people to fit in the society.
