In the Dansaert area since...

2010

What do you sell in your shop?

I design both gold and silver jewelry and art objects like vases, plates, cutlery, birthspoons, chandeliers,... whatever pops up in my mind. I sell my own collections, but also creations of soulmates.  For my designs you don’t always need a special occasion, I also create items for daily use.

Why did you choose Dansaert to start a business?

Born and raised in Brussels I wanted to be in the inspriring DowntownDansaert area: the neighborhood of creators, artists and entrepreneurs. I feel at home amidst the unique boutiques, the restaurants and the little shops. 

What do you love the most about your job?

The challenge to make new original pieces of jewelry over and over again.
Working behind my workbench to produce objects that are both comfortable and aesthetically perfect. To find that harmony is very intriguing.
And on top of that I love the contact with my clients. My creations can only be fully appreciated when being worn.

If you have a spare moment, where can we find you in the neighborhood?

For a coffee or a tea AM Suite (rue des Chartreux) is my hangout of choice.  Bar Bik for a nice meal and the KVS theatre for a performance to get some inspiration and relaxation.

How do you see the future of your shop?

To grow the business… to increase the number of sales points and to cross-sell the works of soulmates.  From a design point of view I would like to focus more on objects like vases, platters, chandeliers, dishes and cutlery. I want to go out more to get inspiration from the streets and from nature.

What dreams do you have for the Dansaert area?

That the Dansaert area will continue to strengthen its position in the city as a flourishing, growing and lively neighbourhood where everyone is welcome.
