'The Shop is Open!' Curious, I clicked on it to see a beautiful collection of colorful, vintage and behomian jewerly that I instantly fell in love with.
How did you learn to make handmade jewerly, and how long does each piece take to make?
I didn´t really learn how to make jewelry, I just started to experiment and also took a closer look at other jewelry makers such as Pamela Love who inspires me a lot! The time I spend on making one piece depends on what it is that I´m creating and wich material I´m using. But in average I would say about 1 to 4 hours.
What is your favorite piece from your collection, and why?
My favourite piece is the necklace with that rainbow color stone. I really like the mix of the golden chain with leather and the stone shines in such beautiful colors! It´s really eyecatching :)
What was the inspiration behind your jewerly collection?
I am a very creative person and it´s always been easy for me to get inspired by all kind of things or happenings. It could be my last travel to NYC, or a photo, a song, a painting... it´s like I am absorbing all of those things and in a flash it comes out of my mind in the form of a new jewelry piece or a painting (yes, I do paint as well :) ). But there´s also one Designer who´s already been mentioned before, who inspires me a lot...Pamela Love! I think she´s doing a great work.
What style do you feel your collection fits most when it comes to the outfits that go along with the jewerly?
I think it´s that style which is mostly inspired by the hippie era mixed with a little touch of grunge. It´s not easy to describe... but it´s that style which comes to my mind when I think of festivals such as Coachella. It´s wild, it´s free, it´s bohemian lifestyle!
