but most of all she missed creating her own designs.
After that she made the choice to follow a full training as a goldsmith at Syntra West.
There she became a goldsmith laureate.
She thinks it's great to make a beautifully finished piece of jewellery from a raw material.
She does the whole process from melting, sawing to making wire and plate with a lot of passion.
Els mainly designs and makes unique contemporary pieces, wearable design.
She loves to create something for and together with the customer that is valuable and personal.
I love it when there's movement in my jewelry. That there is, in fact, life in the jewel. That you discover something new with every new sight.
I also work in layers, this to enhance the 3D effect.
I usually make everything with round shapes. For me this softens the whole thing.
I work mostly in silver and gold, and always do this in the authentic way.
