I’ve been tinkering at my workbench with some new designs and this is the result. Check ‘m out!
Imperfect Stars I like it when things are the opposite of perfect. This also shines through in my new collection ‘Imperfect Stars’ – a collection of oddly shaped porcelain stars and the like. The porcelain is coloured with copper sulphate and iron, giving it a green 'shade' color or an indigo finish. Check out the ‘Imperfect Stars’ in my webshop. Prices start from € 35,-.
Material used: 14 krt gold necklace, gold plated silver, porcelain.
I just had to make a little ring for my own daughters. And now your daughter can have one too! Since my little ones draw hearts on any piece of paper they get in front of them, one of these oddly drawn hearts became the centre piece of this ring.
The little heart is made from copper, because kids like this kind of ‘pink metal’ ;-). The ring itself is made of silver. A standard ring is size 14, suitable for 6 to 8 years old girls. I can make the ring open, so the size can easily be adjusted, on request.
Price: € 35,-

'Making Rings Together' is straight up my most successful workshop to date. I honestly had so much fun with all participants: people brought their own stories, their own ideas and sometimes even their own stones to the workshop. Last week two soon-to-be-married men made their own wedding rings. Little kids crafted tiny rings for themselves. A grandmother and grandson made a ring together. Bending metal, hammering, soldering; all participants were impressed by the beauty of the goldsmith craft, and more importantly: by their own result!
Made for You Commissioned jewellery designs that symbolize life changing moments in a very personal way.

Botanical Wedding Rings
For commissioned designs, I’m always trying to find a very personal story or insight as a leading thought for the piece of jewellery I’m going to make. In an in-depth conversation I had with a couple who asked me to design their wedding rings, the soon-to-be bride told me: “He proposed to me in the botanical garden in Lisbon. Of course I said ‘yes’ and I took a leaf as a souvenir.”
The leaf itself became the inspiration for these wedding rings: an imprint of the leaf was pressed in modelling clay and then casted into gold.
Material: 14kt rose gold, diamond and an engraving, written by the couple themselves.
