Birgit Laken, Suzanne Esser
Birgit Laken and Suzanne Esser are two well-known Dutch jewelry artists who have proved themselves over the years through solid and innovative work. Almost two decades ago they both participated in the important collective show “News from the Netherlands”, presented in the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon.

Birgit Laken studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and today she’s committed not only to jewelry but also to photography, which as inspired her to her most recent work.

Suzzane Esser is dedicated to making small objects, and regards her jewelry as objects that can be worn. She recently begun working with laser technology which allows her to cut thin birch plywood leafs, later mounted to build necklaces.
