Hi! I'm Josien Baetens. I'm a jewelry designer & maker, born and raised in Mechelen, Belgium.
SInce a very young age I'm always drawing, making stuff or messing with any kinds of materials. Out of that constant urge to use my hands and create I started Artschool at college.
After my Master's degree in Fine Arts in 2013, I was still making and creating and then founded my independed label in 2014.
With this label I want to showcase my view on contemporary jewelry and objects. I bring a variety of hand-crafted designs using traditional silversmithing techniques with a strong emphasis on geometricity and simplicty.
All my jewellery follows the same aesthetic: tending toward minimalist yet with interesting details. This makes them to be timeless and unisex designs.
I'm always keeping a close eye on quality and sustainability by creating everything by hand in my own atelier and only working with recycled precious metals.
