Announcement   Contemporary fine jewelry by Dutch designer & master Goldsmith Menno Van Hooff. I make unusual different and interesting playful Jewelry designs. My main attribute is that I like to experiment and 'play' with ideas to make unusual and interesting pieces. I love exploring with new materials and my challenge is to make exceptional but wearable ‘art’ objects.

I prefer to work with gold, but sterling silver is a lot cheaper and easier to work with. I have a classic goldsmith schooling background, but I prefer the contemporary design. I am very lucky that I have my workshops in the beautiful countryside of the south west of France. My work is inspired by these surroundings which are forever changing with the seasons.

This is the perfect size. Shipping was very fast. I really love this ring which both stands out and still is very discreet. I stack it with another ring from the same shop but also wear it alone or with whatever another ring that would fit or take my fancy. Diamond are way overrated! Thank you also for the very fine wool in the package, I like it this way, as yarn.

My sister and I are both cat people. When I lost my two companions of 19+ years, I asked Menno if he could make me a band that represented one of their favorite positions, curled up together. The variation in color in the ring is exactly how these brothers were in real life. The ring is stunning. When I showed a picture of the ring to my sister she blurted out that she wanted one, having recently lost a mother/daughter combo. Thus, the second ring. I get compliments all the time. The detail is so subtle that people often want a closer look. Thank you Menno for such an amazing reminder of the wonderful years my "boys" and I had together❣️

About

The birth of a fabulous goldsmith workshop

In the year 1993 I took the good decision to leaving the big city of Amsterdam and to move to the middle of nowhere in the French countryside, I had to build up and renovate our house first which took me several years, but now I have this amazing workshop in a 300 years old converted smokers room, where I am surrounded by old massive smoky black oak beams and ancient natural stone walls. A remarkable and inspiring space to work.

I make all my creations myself by hand. Often I make my own tools to make things easier and faster, but still traditional handmade pieces are very time consuming to make, but I can assure you that they are unique and one-of-a-kind. Even if I make twice the same design, they will not be 100% identical.

I hope you like my creations which are born in the 300 years old smoker room in the north of the French Dordogne.
