Dutch traditions with a modern twist

From my studio I make jewelry inspired by old Dutch traditions, such as Zeeland buttons and Staphorster dot work. This jewelry is made of gold, silver, pearls , red coral and porcelain. Last year I created a Vermeer collection for the Rijksmuseum as part of the Vermeer exhibition.

When I went on holiday to Drenthe with my parents, brothers and sister in the 1970s, I was never really enthusiastic. Our days were filled with walking and cycling. I thought that was really terrible. Except when we cycled past Staphorst. Then I bawled my eyes out. I was completely fascinated by the people in traditional costumes...


I like working with porcelain, often in light colors. It is durable and the traditional costume motifs look beautiful on it.
