Bibi van der Velden
Bibi van der Velden’s unique fine jewelry is crafted from sustainable, unexpected materials, including 60,000-year-old mammoth tusks, ostrich eggs, and scarab wings, combined with precious materials such as 18k Fair Trade gold, diamonds, and baroque pearls. Nature and the wildlife are another constant in Bibi’s designs. Born in New York and raised in England and the Netherlands, Bibi studied fine art in Florence, Italy, before honing her eye at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Bibi now creates jewelry and sculpture in her Amsterdam studio.
