Because I’m all about knowing what you buy and where you buy, let me introduce myself to you.
Hello, I’m Tess (1992)
Since 2016 I’m creating jewellery. It feels like an obligation to me to always work with an innovating mindset, but one that holds on to values as fair and conscious design and production. This production takes place in Mechelen, Belgium, in the open atelier behind in the shop but also through partnerships. All the jewellery is handcrafted in Belgium by me and an experienced team so I’m sure that I can offer you only the best quality.
As a designer I’m always looking for a balance between ornament and minimalism. The collection is for women who care about uniqueness and timeless design. It has been established to offer fair and durable products. For most people a jewel carries an emotional value, which makes it even more important that the jewellery is created with a certain quality and consciousness. We use recyclable materials, work with the highest silver and gold quality and use carefully selected minerals. All the jewellery comes with an information chart so you, as a customer, always exactly know what you buy, who made it and where it comes from. It is important for the label to add value by local manufacture, authenticity and to be aware of the best production processes meaning the best for our ecology, fair production and our customer.
Challenges and discovering various cultures are part of the process to a certain design. The confrontations make me push my creative boundaries further. The shape, the life and the uniqueness of a gemstone is a source to a new design. Gemstones are from all over the world, which makes it interesting for me to go and discover what the origin of a certain gemstone is and create a collection that brings the gemstone back in connection with its source. For this reason I travelled through Colombia in 2017 to create an exclusive collection with the emerald gemstone, the typical gemstone from Colombia more info. In 2019 I will launch a Brazil collection linked to a journey through Brazil and typical Brazilian Minerals.
Before starting this jewellery brand, I studied Graphic Design at LUCA School of arts in Brussels and goldsmith at Syntra. I continually experiment with new techniques and explore new ways to make my collection grow.
