When I found the lily charms I fell in love with the details, they are light weighted & will dance on your ears, for sure. The charms have a hollow back.
Inspired by one of Diego Rivera’s famous painting: Calla Lily Vendor.
Diego was married with Frida Kahlo, both famous Mexican painters.
Diego made several paintings with Calla Lilies always with the flower girls dressed in Mexico native outfits.
These paintings are an ode to the beauty of Mexico’s native cultures ans to the suffering of her native peoples.
The Diego lily earrings where part of a special designed collection to support the exhibition:
A love Revolution at Cobra Museum of Modern Art Amstelveen & Viva La Frida at Drents Museum Assen.
Material: hypoallergenic stainless steel earhooks, vintage glass bead & hypoallergenic brass charm.
Colors: gold, tangerine/cognac & green.
Measurement Charm: 25x25 mm & flower bead 11 x 0.8mm.
Designer & Founder.
After a career with national & international fashion companies, I was looking for a new challenge.
I took private goldsmith lessons at one of the best goldsmith in Amsterdam.
I always had an interest/love for Jewelry & specially for Victorian Mourning jewelry, which contains a lot of symbolism.
03 CS Jewelry was established in med-2014, in Amsterdam.
Where you also can find the atelier, on the third floor at the Kanaalstraat.
When looking for an international outlook for my company, the name 03 Canal Street popped up.
Nr 03 plays an important role throughout my life..
03 CS Jewelry finally became it.
03 CS Jewelry collections are small, so you have no stress choice!
No huge stock, no sales & no waist!
Also vintage supplies, like sequins are part of the collection.
The (semi) precious beads are selected with care, & add a positive vibe to the jewelry
You will find for now, in the webshop a selection of the 03 CS Jewelry basics & latest 03 CS Jewelry collection, inspired by Frida Kahlo, a famous Mexican painter.
I love to design special jewelry collections for museum shop & exhibitions, like:

-Mata Hari exhibition.
-Love in the 17th century Rembrandt & Saskia.

The first design of 03 CS Jewelry is the happy beetle.
The scarab is a dung beetle and symbolizes eternal life & transformation.
He cleans up your sh*t, I can assure you he does it well.
He brought me a lot of good luck & prosperity.
And till this day the happy beetle is a favorite 03 CS Jewelry piece.
