Trying something new! I found these strings with gemstone beads at a fair and could not resist the colours. It’s Jade, Agat, Aventurijn and Amsthyst. One of my first collections is a gemstone collection my grandfather gave me. I loved all these colourfull stones in a large wooden box with an explanationbooklet and a magnifying glass. This box is somewhere at the attic of my parents but it’s time to dig them up and recover my interest in gemstones.

How idylic looks this little town on the Greek Island Andros?! Today I will send a package filled with Made by lennebelle necklaces and bracelets to this small paradise. I really need a break at the moment and would love to jump in the box and be shipped off to Greec together with the glass tubes, jewelry and displays,…The shop is owned by Kiki but is not open yet. I have only seen the front and that looks lovely already. Will post more when the shop is open!

Inspiration & wishlist

By | jewelry | 2 Comments

This is my jewelry inspiration board & wishlist at the moment. I love to see the work of others. To see what they do, the materials they use, their style. Most labels seem so much more mature than Made by lennebelle, but I will get there too some day!  I’ll just stick to my own thing and keep on going and enjoying.

On top of my wishlist is for sure the loop ring by Saskia Diez and the fox claw earrings by Odette NY. I also adore the cloud ring by Twinklebird.

(check out my tumblr for all images and sources and below all labels, if I missed one please let me know)

Here a sneak peak of my humble jewelry collection. There is more but this is what I wear at the moment. Some pieces more then others. My favourites at the moment are the earring by Eva Schreuder, my new braides feather necklace in mustard yellow and my watch which I got from my sister for my 30st birthday. There are vintage finds and special gifts, earrings by Isabel Marant, necklaces by Scout Holiday and Iefke de Roos, brooches by Remona Poortman and Sandra Turina, bracelets by me, MHL studio and Charlotte Wooning. Treasure them all and would love to expand with a few items which I have on my wishlist.

The jewelry collections are photographed by Jeana Sohn  from the blog Closet Visit where she  takes a peak in inspirational womens’ closets. With each visits she also shows their jewelry collection! I love to see what these women wear. My head is full of ideas for Made by lennebelle and I can’t wait to work them out! Because of the Exchange Project my own collection of jewelry is growing too. I will show you this week! And also loved this painted jewelry collection by Chau.

The exchange project: Puur Anders (Mothers day special)

By | jewelry | No Comments

This exchange project get’s me more and more excited about getting to know the work of new designers. ‘Puur Anders’ (Pure Different) e-mailed me to join The exchange project. I saw her work once via Pia Jane and loved it. Miranda, the jewelry designer, has an unique style and a new collection called ‘Hidden memories‘.

The collection is based on history and childhood memories of her own but you can also choose for a customised piece of jewelry with your own hidden memory. I thought to stick with the concept and trade for this very cute pineconeleaf brooche with a photo of me and my sister when we were 3 and 5 years old. It was the perfect Mothersday gift.

See all her work on her website; Puur Anders and her shop. For a customised piece you can send her an e-mail.

Now it is time to spread it around and find amazing shops all around the world who are interested. If you have any suggestions please let me know! It is always best to find good places (shops) via reccomendations. You can see the whole catalog here.
