Dieuwke Raats is an independant jewelry designer, goldsmith and teacher working out of her studio in the small town Goor, the Netherlands. She combines traditional hand tool methods, which she learned at the goldsmithing school at Schoonhoven, with contemporary methods.

Dieuwke: “My jewelry is an expression of personal story’s. My desire is to create a wearable reminder of a special moment, person or thought in someone’s live. And that someone is sometimes myself. My design process is often process-driven but sometimes a personal story invites me to sketch first. My designs are simple and elegant.“
