Our booth at ARTzaanstad

After posting a few photos on Facebook, many of you asked to show more photos of our booth. Well here they are … our booth at ARTzaanstad!

The Jewelry Story Marion pannekoek 2017

The design of the booth is my idea and we built it together. Here I am, like almost always, in a dress made by 13threads. The dress on the previous photo is also by 13threads and I received many compliments about my clothes! The necklace I wear is a design of mine it is 2 meters long and comes from the Nature series.

Jan had this excellent idea to place tomatoes on our booth. Because of the bright red color visitors were attracted to our booth from afar.

The Jewelry Story Jan Kerkstra 2017

My partner Jan Kerkstra in the stand. He wore a small shoulder bag to carry our mobile paying device. A man wearing a small bag still gets surprising comments from both participants and visitors.

The precious jewelry is in the little cottage. To present jewelry open on the table is still risky. Not only because of theft, but also because of small children sometimes grabbing the jewelry.

ARTzaanstad, an art fair is held in an old factory hall at the Hembrug site in Zaandam. The white walls are provided by the fair, the small houses on the wall and the “counter” are ours.

Lab 44 Havenbuurt Zaandam


A little further down from the Artfair is Lab44 a location on the water. A beautifully located restaurant where you can eat small and bigger meals. The herb garden in wooden planters is beautiful to look at, it’s practical and dogs can not pee over the herbs.

We are back home and busy re-setting the studio again. You are very welcome to stop by and see our jewelry collection!
