Head, heart and hands

After a career as an instructional designer and manager I started to focus on ‘an old love’: the creative working with metal. I learned the basics of the craft of two very experienced goldsmiths. They taught me the traditional goldsmithing techniques in their workplace. Thereafter I studied at the Academy for Goldsmithing Van Helden. I graduated with a collecion masterpieces. On my website www.zaruw.com you can have a look. And still every day I am learning: there is quite a lot to learn in this field and I love it.

In my studio I apply these techniques in my own designs using contemporary materials as e.g. resins and acrylics. I also enjoy to make use of all kinds of residual materials: beside different metals also leather, glass and ‘found objects’. Always in search of interesting colors, shapes and materials. Meanwhile I have a whole collection to ‘upcycle’.

It is an exciting field: designing jewelry and working with the many specialistic and wonderful tools to finally create a beautiful object that didn’t exist before.

I like diffuse forms, shapes that are more or less ambiguous and leave room for fantasy and imagination .I can enjoy a fine abstract form. But often a piece of work is more fascinating when something unusual, unexpected or witty is added. I give preference to combinations of rigid and curved lines, to unexpected combinations of materials, I like asymmetric forms more than mirrored ones.

Before actually starting the fabrication, I usually create a design to reflect the necessary techniques and working sequence. But during the creative process I often deviate from it also. I love to experiment,to investigate forms and materials and playing with these. This way there is room for my imagination.

And when I am not in my studio I love to work in my (kitchen) garden or you can see me walking with my dog through the countryside I’m living in.
