‘Every day is a day to be beautiful’: by Charlotte Wooning

By | arts & crafts, jewelry | 2 Comments

Every day is a day to be beautiful is this amazingly pretty shop / workspace by jewellery designer Charlotte Wooning. Everywhere you look is pure eye candy! The jewellery is displayed in antique and vintage suitcases, showcases, cabinets and cloches. I adore the little porcelain boxes Charlotte made in collaboration with Carola Zee (see first photos) Also the flower decoration I find beautiful.

The shop is filled with her own designs but also other dutch and foreign jewellery designers showcase their pieces like Martine Viergever and Hester Zagt from Rotterdam and Studio MHL from Amsterdam. Besides you can make an appointment with Charlotte to create a custom made piece of jewellery just for you. I will have a cute bracelet designed with a little star. Still a present for our 2 year anniversary!

Last winter I had a atelier sale here and already thought the place was beautifull but was not at all finished at the time. Now it is a true gem in Rotterdam and a must visit when you’re there! Check out opening times and more here.

In found this jewelry brand via Compramelo (they posted about Made by l e n n e b e l l e when I was in Asia! See post here). I think these necklaces are stunning! They are made by Maranon and are all handembroidered. I added a necklace by Maranon to my wishlist. Here you can find a nice interview with the founder of Maranon, Lorena, about how the whole thing started!

My hometown Rotterdam has a lot to offer when it comes to art, design, architecture and culture and it’s filled with creative people doing their thing! These are my favourite Rotterdam based designers! Martine Viergever (jewellery), Daisy Kroon (fashion) Carola Zee (ceramics) and Charlotte Wooning (jewellery).

Daisy Kroon recently also did a photoshoot with Sophia van den Hoek, check out Daisy’s website! Remember my dreamy photoshoot for Made by l e n n e b e l l e!
