Whether it’s creating a unique piece of jewellery to mark one of life’s most important moments, or commissioning a design for a loved one, Bibi van der Velden can craft one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces on a bespoke basis.
The bespoke process involves discussions with Bibi about the design direction of the piece of jewellery you would like to create, which can take place either at her Amsterdam studio or remotely. From picking the stones and precious metals that you would like to work into your piece’s design, to collaborating with Bibi to dream up its form, symbolism, and message, creating a bespoke jewellery piece gives a glimpse into the boundless creativity that characterises Bibi’s jewellery.
Once you have decided on the foundations of your jewellery piece, Bibi will keep you updated throughout the process, with beautifully detailed sketches and pictures of the initial forms of the jewellery that she carves in wax. Bibi can design a piece that’s entirely original, or take a family heirloom as the starting point for a new piece of jewellery, lending it a new life with her unmistakably artistic touch.
Family Tree NecklaceA family – mother, father, baby, and their dog – are represented in this magical-looking pendant, that a client commissioned Bibi to make to commemorate her baby’s birth. The design captures an 18k rose gold tree in a smooth rock crystal “bean.” The tree is set with amethysts, pink sapphires, and tsavorites, while head motifs to represent the different family members, and the letters of their first names, hang from its branches. The necklace sits on a double strand, 18k rose gold chain, with amethysts, pink sapphires, and tsavorites sprinkled along the chain’s length.
