One of the most frequent featured jewellery pieces on this site is my bracelet from Yolanda Döpp (see below right). I did not feature her name so much as for a while I had no idea who the designer of my favorite bracelet was. But now that I have found out, I think it’s only appropriate that I feature her on this site and showcase some of her beautiful contemporary jewellery designs.
Born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, one year earlier than me (1965) she designs contemporary silver and gold jewellery with clear, modern lines.
“I’m very technical” she says on her website, “I always try to create one complete piece. The lock needs to blend into the whole design, for example”.
She creates 2 collections per year in which her signature style can be clearly recognised. That makes it easy to mix and match all her jewellery.
“I love to create something beautiful. The design comes naturally through experimenting with different forms”.
Custom jewellery from children’s drawings
She also creates jewellery from children’s drawings. Based on the drawing of the child, she makes brooches, tie pins or pendants in silver. You can send the drawing to her via her website and she will then give you a quotation. This could be a very special Christmas present!
Here is the designer in her studio. Unfortunately, it’s only narrated in Dutch, but if you like to get an idea of how she works, you may still want to have a look.
You can check more of her work on her website where you can also order online. It’s all in Dutch though so you will need to use Google translate!
Do you have a favorite jewellery designer? Let me know and I may just feature him / her on the site!
