Craftswomen at work
Craftswomen are at work at Oogst. Women with technical skills, expertise and with wild ideas. Entrepreneurs, pioneers, managers, dreamers, makers, designers, advisers. Women who persevere, who love details and tools and love to make things work.
The design style in the Oogst collection
The handmade collection, created in the Oogst studio, is quite distinct with it’s natural shapes, surprising textures, clean lines, a colourful variety in gemstones and elegant hand engravings. Experiments are done with old fashioned goldsmithing techniques and modern adaptations. This way we create a fun play of shape, colour and material for each jewel.
Did you know that besides the stylish jewellery in our handmade collection we also create custom designs? Book an appointment to tell us your wishes and to discuss all the possibilities. With expert advice and a passion for our craft we help you choose. Are the clean, more graphic designs more your style, or do you love the sweet, naturalistic line? This way it will become a jewel that works with your personal style.
Modern classics since 2008
Lotte and Ellen founded Oogst in 2008 and they showed their first Oogst collection at the end of that year. “In 1994 we started our goldsmithing career, as classmates at the Vakschool Schoonhoven, the goldsmithing school in The Netherlands. Afterwards we worked in different studios to gain some experience in our craft and took some time to develop our own style. We each have 25 years of experience as designers and goldsmiths.”

Kathinka will help you find the best match in the collection and Nathalie can make this jewel for you. Lotte and Ellen will design it and make sure that Oogst runs smoothly.
