It seems like my love for – minimalistic – jewellery is slowly becoming a thing on The Tawny Fox. When I went to C-mine to visit ‘Handgemarkt’ – an indoor market filled with handmade pieces – and also bumped into the labyrinth a while ago, I strolled past various stands not really being intrigued by any of them. Until some dainty silver jewellery pieces caught my eye. I could not help but share this amazing Dutch brand called Danielle Vroemen Jewellery.
Pieces like these can only be designed by someone very talented and passionate, so there’s no doubt Danielle has a lot of both. Having grown up in a family of DIY’ers – so to speak – working with her hands came natural from a young age. After graduating the Academy of fine arts in Maastricht, she took the time to figure out what she wanted out of life. But soon enough her creativity got the better of her and she designed and created her first jewellery collection ‘GEOM’ in 2010. Now, five years later, she has four collections, GABARIT being the latest one – and my personal favorite.
I thought it would be amazing to be able to create something I had designed myself. After five years I still think it’s the most multi-faceted work you can do. Danielle
It comes as no surprise geometry is the biggest inspiration for her handmade designs. Though patterns, graphic design, architecture and travel can be inspiring to her as well. From the range of metals, silver is her all time favorite material to work with. She explains it suits her best because it has a timeless feel to it and can be combined endlessly.
Metals add some toughness. I can best express my style with them, something I would’t be able to do with wood or ceramics for example, because I work with a lot of facets. Metals show them off the best, silver in particular. Danielle
Head over to DV JEWELLERY website to check out all her geometrically inspired designs. TEASER: next week and at the end of the month she will release another small collection! Think small diamond shaped pendants..
