Marlous van der Toorn

The story of...Marlous...It is not that different from yours; a few months ago she dared to follow her dream. She pursued her creative dream and she's currently ‘living it’. She traveled across borders to design and source her first collection. The result is a beautiful line of complimentary pieces. Marlous van der Toorn Jewelry is handmade of ‘brass’ also known as ‘yellow copper’.  Brass has an organic feel. It is a living breathing metal that oxidizes and ages with time; just like a human being. It’s pure…just the way life is supposed to be.  The jewelry has a delicate, sensual feel combined with the raw and organic qualities of the copper. This combination gives every piece a vintage touch. Enjoy wearing.......and don't forget to follow your dream. There are so many inspiring quotes - her all time favorite is Paulo Coelho:  'And when you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it' - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist This is the experience she gained from her journey. Beautiful...made in Bali...yeey...You can buy her goodies at Amsterdam based super store


Ring, ring...

Cool "jacket" you wear over your clothes....

Me and Mats

Sometimes the worst things in life provoke a radical – but positive – change. That’s what happened to Astrid, founder of ME&MATS. Her story has a sad start: her son Mats was born too early and lost the battle for his life. Some time later she realized that those short moments with Mats may have been the happiest in her life. It also occurred to her that happiness is in little things, in cherishing moments. Just then and there, ME&MATS was born. With ME&MATS, Astrid sends that message to the word: enjoy life, find your delights in small things that happen, and choose all that gives you and the ones you love that great happy feeling. For Astrid, ME&MATS is a way of still having a part of Mats in her life, just to remind her – and you! – to stop rushing, to let go of the day to day stress  and seize the moment. ME&MATS is a 'whenever, wherever brand with a mission'. Their mission is to offer those special must-have-feel-good items, the ones that make you feel pretty. Accessories that bring a sparkle in your life! Beautiful necklaces, there's more, go have a look...I lovvve the power of semi precious stones...Carry always...with you and it will carry you...
She also sells cool bags, earrings, bracelets and there's much more to come..keep you posted...
