As a child I was already fascinated by working with my hands with all different kind of materials. This love for materials and techniques became the key to my designs.
I use different kind of techniques and materials to design and make my jewelry. One of my famous designs are the embroidery rings in which traditonal handwork and modern jewelry blend perfectly. For this design I won a price in 2009 on the show Eclat de Mode in Paris.
My button jewelry are inspired by old buttons which my grandmother saved. I wanted to give these special buttons a new meaning. By using them in my jewelry you can wear these special old buttons as a modern jewel.
For my folded jewelry I was inspired by a paper folding technique which I learned as a child. By applying the paper folding in a different kind of material I create a special piece of jewelry.
As I have described above; I make beautiful silver rings which are decorated with handmade embroidery. All rings are handmade in my workshop in the Netherlands which makes it a perfect product for custom-made designs.
I started this Kickstarter project to develop an online tool which makes it possible for costumers to design their own embroidery ring. I think developing this tool will make it possible to put your own creativity and personal touch into my design.
The rings are made of 925 silver. The embroidery is made with DMC embroidery thread. Because the embroidery is made with real yarn, it will wear out in time. The nice thing about the embroidery ring is that you can embroider it again because the pattern is in your ring. So you use a fine needle and nice colors and make your own embroidery when the original one is worn out!
In the online tool you are able to choose your own colors for the embroidery and even design your own pattern that will be made into your ring.
As soon as I have realized the online tool it is possible to design your own ring. You will receive a notification that the tool is online and you can design your reward ring. When you send your design by using the tool, I will receive your design and contact you about your design and ring size. When I have received all the right information I will start making your custom-made ring.
I'm looking forward to receive all your creative ideas for patterns and colors and make your unique embroidery rings!

Risks and challenges
At this moment I'm talking with a developer who is going to make the tool. We are confident the tool will be launched around the end of September 2016. Any setbacks during the making of the tool could cause a delay in this part of the project. We do not expect any surprises but you never know for sure... The rings are a product which I already make for a few years now, so I don't expect any problems making the (reward) rings for you.
As soon as the tool is online you can design your reward ring. When I have received your design I start making your unique ring.
Delivery time... At this moment the most difficult question is: how many backers are going to design an embroidery ring... So the delivery time is depending on the success of the project.
Because all rings are handmade I hope you can understand I have to give an estimate delivery date at the moment you place your order. The delivery time depends on how many rings I have to make. For now, I have set the delivery date on December 2016. When your order is placed in October 2016 this delivery estimate should be possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
