the jewellery designers
We are Ellen Philippen and Lotte Porrio, the Oogst (Harvest) goldsmiths. In our boutique, in the heart of the Amsterdam neighbourhood the Jordaan, we design & create stylish jewellery and one-of-a-kind custom pieces.
In 1994 we started our goldsmith career at the Vakschool Schoonhoven. We were classmates and always kept in touch until we one day decided to start a studio together. Before founding Oogst we both worked in different goldsmith studios in The Netherlands and Belgium to train our skills. Now we both have 25 years of experience in our craft.
Our first Oogst handmade jewellery collection launched in 2008. Back then we were only a small studio, and working hard on growing our business and developing our own distinct styles. The colourful boutique opened beginning of 2011, in the heart of Amsterdam. From there we grew into a team with help in the studio and in the shop. What remains the same is the two distinct design styles. The graphic pieces Lotte creates and the natural pieces Ellen makes, together they are Oogst!
The Oogst team is very happy to celebrate the studio was founded 12,5 years ago, this summer of 2020.
