Eva van Kempen

Eva van Kempen (1976) is an Amsterdam based goldsmith - jewellery artist. She studied at the vocational school of goldsmiths in Schoonhoven and Amsterdam; and was tutored by artists/teachers amongst others of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and Alchimia school of contemporary jewellery in Florence. Her work evolved drastically when she was confronted with hospital tools. In 2015 she had a solo-exhibition at AMC, the hospital where she used to be a patient. At the invitation of Museum De Fundatie Eva developed jewels for sculptures of the collection of the museum. The exhibition 'Ready-To-Bear' in Kasteel Het Nijenhuis took place from September 8th, 2017 until February 11th, 2018.

Publications: Dr. Martine F. Delfos / Klimt02 (January 2018) /Radio EenVandaag, de Optimist (September 2017) /Telegraaf/VROUW (August 2017)

"Eva van Kempen connects life and death in a fête of life."

Martine France Delfos on 'Ready-To-Bear'

Most jewels are one of a kind, or made in a limited edition. Jewels can be purchased from collection and stock, or you can be part of the designing process. This process more than once takes shape as a pleasant temporary companionship due to the mutual goal of creating a personal and unique jewel.

Eva supports re-melting old / heirloom gold as, not only it can be of great emotional value and an economically wise decision, it is also environmental friendly. Moreover, in commission she crafts jewels in fairmined or fairtrade gold, a ground-breaking initiative that offers a lifeline to artisanal and small-scale miners and their communities.

“Designing for someone in particular can be a memorable experience in itself, as the stories that are being shared are as personal as the jewels will be.”
Eva van Kempen jewellery is exclusively being sold at:
