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 goldsmiths 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.
In search of an international look for my company; the name 03 Canal Street popped up.
Nr 03 plays an important role my life..
03 CS Jewelry finally became it.
03 CS Jewelry collections are small, so you have no stress choosing.
No huge stock, no sales & no waste!
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.

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.
