8. Tell me a bit about you... I'm from nowhere. Well, I was born in a place I can't remember because I was so young when we left. I went to kindergarden in other country whose language I even forgot because I moved to another country at 6. I'm Dutch by nationality, but my English is better than my Dutch. I've lived in the UK for nearly 9 years now. Jewellery has a been a constant - I've been making jewellery for as long as I can remember and finally started working in silver and gold about 5 years ago. I absolutely love making stylish, modern and different pieces. I like the minimal look, but sometimes I can't resist crystals or decorative Japanese paper. I like making one-off and custom items. My favourite pieces to make and design are rings, but I'm getting more into earrings. I even got over my dread of needles and got my ears pierced just so I could test earrings to make sure the designs work! I'm always happy to hear from people if they have questions about any of my items :-)
