Old Treasures.

Did I mention we, Atelier The Jewelry Story are working on a new site? Yes, indeed a lot of work and a very lengthy process, thanks for asking. Yesterday I had the task of going through hundreds of photos, to look for usable images of pieces Jan and I made in the past. And look what I found … these beauties!

For the loyal readers … on some of these pieces I have written earlier but back then I did not have these beautiful pictures to post with the article … and now I have. All pieces were purchased by the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands and belong to the permanent collection of the museum.

Napkin Rings Croissant, design by me, Marion Pannekoek. The photo was taken on a more than 200 years old linen napkin from the collection of the Fries Museum. If you look closely you can see the silver has a print of linen in it and the spots are made of pure (24K) gold.
These napkin holders are still in our collection.

These silver forks are inlaid with teak wood, design and execution by my partner Jan Kerkstra. Do you know … the teak comes from one of our old garden chairs?

Vessel Swinging Moon, design by Marion Pannekoek. The border and the rivets that attached the wood are made from 18 carat gold. I remember when making this vessel that making the wood fit by steaming it was the hardest part. If you push the vessel it slowly moves, hence the name.
