MY STORY

My grandfather had a craft shop with all kinds of beads and we ended up with them after he passed away. So with those beads I loved to make different color combinations and create jewelry with it. Not knowing the craft of goldmsith even existed. But after finishing my fashion school I searched for a new education and after I saw a small information video of a goldsmith I went to the information day at "de Vakschool" in Schoonhoven. At the school there was a typical "workplace scent".

A combination of metals, tools, wood...a very familiar scent to me since my dad always worked on home projects in the weekend and I loved that. So from the moment that I got in touch with this craftmanship, I felt that this was something I could do for the rest of my life. I'm a little bit of a tomboy but one that also loves clothing, makeup and glitter so the combination of the technique, working with your hands, getting them dirty but also the precious metals and shiney gemstones is what makes this profession perfect for me! 

As a designer and goldsmith I'm inspired by life, art and nature and my goal is to make quality jewelry that people wear and cherish for at least a lifetime. I have a studio + shop in Delft with some other artists and here I create my handcrafted jewelry based on my own designs and present them in the shop. Besides my own jewelry we also offer other products of mostly Dutch designers. I hope to inspire people with the shop and to create a pleasant casual vibe in the shop

where you feel free to take a look around and to try out the jewelry.

 

My jewelry tend to have a sleek design in combination with romantic details, resulting in contemporary playful pieces that will

last a lifetime. Because I value our Mother earth I'll try to work with recycled silver, gold and secondhand gemstones as much

as possible. 

I hope I can add a little sparkle in your life with my jewelry and if you have any questions or you just want to say hi?

Please don't hesitate to contact me!

Love, Lies
