Hi! I’m Manon, a goldsmith / jewellery designer from Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
From childhood on I have been possessed of precious stones, beads and colored pencils. I can look for hours attractive colors and beautiful materials. I used to draw, do crafts and clay for hours.
After HAVO I went to the "Vakschool" , Jewellery design and Goldsmith Academy in Schoonhoven and from then on I became a "professional geek". I can sit for hours behind my workbench to come up with new designs and try out new techniques.
I am constantly on the lookout for new materials and techniques and hope to create special, stubborn pieces. From the drawing table as a rough sketch to the end product, my jewelry is made entirely by hand. Continually striving for perfection and maintaining pure craftsmanship.
I fel in love with Andalusia, the colors, ceramics and ambiance and I hope that this same feeling and vibe reflects in my designs!
