Wouters & Hendrix jewelry had a pop up store at the Vogue Warehouse in Amsterdam during Fashion’s Night Out, presenting their jewelry. Katrin Wouters and Karen Hendix have mainly silver designs, each of which tells its own story using colourful childhood memories, original combinations of materials and bizarrely ambiguous references. And since 3 years also a gold collection. Here a glimpse of some of the jewelry.
About Wouters & Hendrix
Katrin Wouters and Karen Hendrix both graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, section goldsmithing in their native town Antwerp. They started designing jewelry together since 1984 as best friends and are now a firm part of Antwerp’s fashion scene.
Along the way, their mix of refinement and adventure became more and more sophisticated and so did the materials of their craft shifting from copper to sterling silver and semi-precious stones such as onyx, smoky quartz, moonstone, citrine, jade, chrysoprase, mother of pearl.
W&H seek out the shapes which best display the characteristics of semi-precious stones to their advantage with drops, flowers, rectangles.
They have 2 collections a year, but their “My favourite” line, mainly timeless sterling silver pieces, is permanently for sale.
The exquisite handwork and couture finish of W&H jewelry has earned them international renown with clients as Baycrew’s, HP France, Joyce, Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Le Bon Marché, La Garçonne,…
