As a child, Karolin already formed a crystal-clear vision about colours, materials, shapes and visual arrangements. Even though this determined Belgian designer originally aspired to become a medical lab analyst, she signed up for architecture and is now taking the jewellery scene by storm.
You studied architecture and ended up as a jewellery designer. Was this always your dream?
No, this wasn’t how I imagined my career in the beginning. I’ve always had an interest in nature, different textures and materials and especially colour. My mother told me that I was very fond of plants and flowers as a child, arranging them to form a bouquet. So, when I gave birth to my third child, I decided it was the right time to try something else. My husband already worked in the diamond business which made it easier for me to take the risk in developing my own brand. Yet, I would never describe myself as a jewellery designer. I feel more like an object designer. That is why I also prefer to be stocked by fashion boutiques instead of jewellery stores.
I feel as if I’m giving back to nature by creating something precious, beautiful and exclusive with agate.
My jewels are made to see the world. And especially to be worn on every occasion, even at the beach or while surfing.
