    Bibi van der Velden

    Thoughtfully Sculpted Jewels

     

    Bibi van der Velden’s exotic and mesmerizing materials lead her to reveal the beauty of imperfection inherent to our natural world. Using remarkable, pure materials such as semiprecious stones, ostrich eggs, scarab wings, tahitian pearls and cuts of 40,000-year-old mammoth tusk, Bibi sculpts each piece of jewelry as she would a work of art. With studios in The Netherlands, Switzerland, France and Thailand, her designs are inspired by the fundamental stories that are embedded in the myriad of cultures surrounding her every day.
