about Oogst: dutch jewellery designers
We are Ellen Philippen and Lotte Porrio, the Oogst (it translates as Harvest) goldsmiths. In our studio, in the heart of Amsterdam, we design & create stylish and exclusive jewellery and one-of-a-kind custom variations on our pieces.
modern classics since 2008
In April 2008 we founded Oogst. Back then we were only a small studio, where we put all our tools, savings and ideas together for our common goal: a boutique filled with our own designs. The Oogst shop opened in 2011, in the heart of the Jordaan area in Amsterdam. From there we grew into a team.
What remains the same is our two distinct design styles. The graphic pieces Lotte creates and the organic pieces Ellen designs, together we are Oogst!
More background information about us, the Oogst team, and our craft you can find in our biography.
a tribute to our fascinations
The inspiration for our Oogst collection is everything that grows.
Our yearly harvest – Oogst – is a series of one-of-a-kind pieces created around a special source of inspiration. Inspired by beauty found in nature, a Brothers Grimm fairytale, a Cabinet of Curiosities, the authentic Japanese treasures in the SieboldHuis Museum, the Wiener Werkstätte, fabric patterns and the Amsterdam Hortus to name a few.
You can discover more about the themes of the previous Oogst collection designs on our collections page.
In our beautiful spot at the Tweede Tuindwarsstraat in Amsterdam, we combine our studio with a boutique. We enjoy showcasing our handmade work and craftsmanship at the exact place where our jewellery meets their new owners.
Oogst Sieraden is a member of the Federation Gold and Silver and Lotte & Ellen are proud members of the Dutch Guild of Goldsmiths. Oogst is part of the Jewelry Route Amsterdam and a member of the Amsterdam Made community.
At Oogst we work with recycled gold and conflict free diamonds. You are also very welcome to bring your own gold or precious stones to the studio for us to work with, to upcycle them into a beautiful new Oogst piece.
We are happy to have you over at the boutique to advice you about your Oogst purchase or to discuss your wishes for your own custom variations on an Oogst design. Make an appointment and come discover our handcrafted collection of exclusive and standout jewels.
