Eva van Kempen

Eva van Kempen (November 30, 1976) is an Amsterdam based goldsmith - jewellery designer. She studied at the vocational school of goldsmiths in Schoonhoven and Amsterdam; and attended masterclasses of artists/teachers of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and Alchimia school of contemporary jewellery in Florence. Her work evolved drastically when she was confronted with hospital tools in 2011. In 2015 she had a solo-exhibition at AMC, the hospital where she used to be a patient. At the invitation of Museum De Fundatie Eva developed jewels for sculptures of the collection of the museum. The exhibition 'Ready-To-Bear' is to be seen in Kasteel Het Nijenhuis, until January 7th, 2018.

"In these cold, sterile, functional materials, she saw saving beauty and promising opportunities; she saw jewels"

Pieter Kusters

Most jewels are one of a kind, or made in a limited edition. Jewels can be purchased from collection and stock, or you can be part of the designing process. This process more than once takes shape as a pleasant temporary companionship due to the mutual goal of creating a personal and unique jewel.

Eva supports re-melting old / inherited gold as, not only it can be of great emotional value and an economically wise decision, it is also environmentally friendly. Moreover, in commission she crafts jewels in fairmined or fairtrade gold, a ground-breaking initiative that offers a lifeline to artisanal and small-scale miners and their communities.

“Designing for someone in particular can be a memorable experience in itself, as the stories that are being shared are as personal as the jewels will be.”
