Believe in Magic
Material: Bronze, Japanese paper and coated cotton

The design of this pendant refers to an Ancient Roman Talisman. Amulets like this, containing texts, objects or symbols, have been used since ancient times. Worn around the neck or carried on the body, they were thought to drive away evil spirits, offer protection, and make wishes come true.
Do you have a wish, dream or personal motto? Write it on the little piece of paper inside the pendant and carry it with you. If you believe in magic, your wish might come true:)
The light of day
Material: 3D print in Versatile Nylon, coated cotton
Size: 4 cm
Many ideas will never see the light of day: daring ideas, 'bad' ideas, too expensive ideas. Ideas for our daily life, for music, art, food, or for our future. This piece of jewelry is an abstract translation of a wad of crumpled paper. Once a sheet of paper on which that one challenging idea was written out. Then crumpled and pushed aside.
This necklace reminds you of the fact that your ideas are valuable and you should honor them. There will come a time when you can make them come true.
A necklace for people with a dream.
Hansel and Gretel
Part of the jewelry series ‘Fairy Tales’
Material: massive silver pendant & coated cotton thread.
Size: 1 cm per crumb.
The concept is based upon the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, who find their way home by sprinkling breadcrumbs. The pendant is a solid silver cast of a dry breadcrumb. Each pendant is unique, because the breadcrumbs have been destroyed during the casting process.
A necklace for every (symbolic) traveler who wants to carry a piece of 'home' with him or her.
