Evert Nijland:

My work is based on images out of the art history, in particular the Renaissance and Baroque time. I translate these images into my own contemporary context. My jewelry reveals this interaction between the past and present.
For me, glass has become the most important material in my work. I started using glass 5 years ago, and it has become the most important material for my work. I love the contradictions in the material itself, for example that it often looks soft, while actually being hard. It is very exciting for me to combine glass with a variety of other contrasting materials, such as textile, leather and metal. By adding colors or treating the surface in different ways I can change the character of glass. It is a great challenge
to give it a soul.

Terhi Tolvanen:

My work is about human intervention in nature. Because nature keeps on growing, this interference needs to be maintained and continued. This interaction between the two has become the central theme of my jewelry. In my choice of materials I am also searching for the borders between the natural and the artificial.

Truike Verdegaal:

‘Birds touch me’, says Trui. ‘Because they are brave and strong, and at the same time so delicate and fragile.’ A seemingly simple subject, the bird, but one that hides a layered and rich world. To disclose this world, Truike felt it was necessary not to be too literal. Therefore, she has not used any feathers to tell her story, but instead used lace, matted wool, silk, and laminate. With these materials, she has developed imagery that is very suggestive and picturesque.
