As a designer-goldsmith Liesbeth merges design, visual thinking, and the traditional art and craft of jewelry. Encounters with local people and cultures, myths, beliefs, symbols and traditions influence her work hugely. Liesbeth journeys with her camera, dog and van, capturing the many wonders of nature and translating those adventures into her designs. She works on her art-projects combining city life in her spacious studio in The Hague in The Netherlands, with silence in her atelier in a tiny old harvest house with bees and almond trees in the free mountains of Alicante, Spain.
