DESIGNER & GOLDSmith

After an international career in graphic design I’ve put my hands on gold. I love the poetics of the making. THE slow process, creatES space for thought. 

my jewels are biographical. like the glass slipper to cinderella. your jewel should only fit you. after we’ve had a talk, i use A METAPHOR of what you’ve told me in your piece.

i often recycle pieces with a family history, it adds to the emotional value, and it is very sustainable.
my apprenticeship was with the marvellous PHILIP SAJET: “left hand is your vice, right hand YOUR fiddlestick.”

Ralph bakker taught me enamelLing.
