Goldsmithing, more than a craft.
Jewelry is worn for as many reasons as there are choices. Because it is a beautiful accessory, but usually because of a special meaning. Marriage, congratulating, remembering, expressing and so much more. These jewelery deserve quality, durability and, above all, personal attention. Below you will find my portfolio that consists of various types of custom orders. All jewelry is handmade by me from start to finish in my own studio in Herwen, Gelderland (The Netherlands). You are welcome to contact us for all your questions and custom orders. Repairs, alterations and reuse are also possible. I also like to work with gemstones and other beautiful materials. Summarized: A lot is possible. I'd love to hear from you!
Chain of office of the municipality of Zevenaar (The Netherlands)
As a child I loved to be creative and I was fascinated by minerals and gemstones. When I found out that there was a way to combine these two interests, the choice was quickly made. I attended a vocational school (Schoonhoven) to become a goldsmith and I graduated in 2011. After that I could quickly get started as a goldsmith at a jewelry store, I did this for 6 years. In 2018 I was given the opportunity to start my own studio and to fully focus on my own work. I like to work with gemstones, symbolism and organic shapes. You will see this a lot in the photos on my website. In 2020 I was given the honor of designing and manufacturing the chain of office of the municipality of Zevenaar. This was a fun and challenging assignment! Click here to see the creation process.
