KATHLEEN CLAERHOUT

JEWELRY AND CREATIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

KATHLEEN CLAERHOUT HAS BEEN DESIGNING AND CREATING FOR 24 YEARS. AN UNRESTRAINED FANTASY THAT REFLECTS HER FATHER'S, SCULPTOR AND BRONZE CASTER, MARC, IS THE LEITMOTIF OF EVERY CREATION. AN INFINITE IMAGINATION WHICH PORTRAYS THE WORLD SHE GREW UP IN.

 

THE DESIGNING, SHAPING, MODELLING, MOULDING, CARVING, POLISHING, PLACING OF PRECIOUS STONES... EVERY PROCESS IS HANDMADE.

EVERY JEWEL IS A UNIQUE PIECE INITIALLY ENVISIONED AND CREATED FOR THE DESIGNER HERSELF OR ON REQUEST BY THE COSTUMERS, BOTH WOMEN AND MEN.

KATHLEEN'S JEWELLERY IS PERSONALISED, MADE TO MEASURE AND MODELLED FROM THE MOST PRECIOUS METALS AND GEMS.

 

KATHLEEN'S HAPPINESS LIES IN HER CREATIONS. NOTICING WHEN CUSTOMERS FEEL "MORE BEAUTIFUL" WHEN WEARING HER JEWELLERY AND DESIGNS, THAT'S WHAT SHE CONSIDERS THE MOST REWARDING PART OF HER WORK. THESE JEWELS AND CREATIONS SHAPE THEIR OWN FANTASTIC WORLD FILLED WITH UNIQUE CREATURES DESIGNED TO ACCOMPANY YOU ON YOUR LIFE JOURNEY.

 

KATHLEEN DESIGNS RINGS, NECKLACES, BRACELETS, KEYCHAINS, AND LEATHER ACCESSORIES. AS WELL AS EXCLUSIVE LEATHER HANDBAGS WITH TIN ACCENTS. ENTIRELY HANDMADE USING A TECHNIQUE HER GRANDFATHER DANIEL TAUGHT HER AS A LITTLE GIRL.

 

FRANS, ANTOON, DANIEL, JEF, MAY, MARC... GREAT UNCLE, GRANDFATHER, UNCLE, AUNT, FATHER, MOST OF THEM FULL-TIME PAINTERS, SCULPTORS.

TRADITION? CREATIVITY RUNS IN THIS FAMILY!
