Marleen Hengeveld

Marleen Hengeveld

Marleen comes from an artistic family. Her grandfather on mother’s side introduced the profession of goldsmithing at the Technical school in Amsterdam, where first her mother, and later Marleen herself applied. Her grandfather on father’s side was a renowned pianist and composer of classical music. They have had great influence on her artistic development. Marleen remembers: ¨Walking around during the open day at The Technical School I was fascinated by the exhibited works and somehow emotionally overwhelmed’’.
After graduating first as a goldsmith and later as an art historian at the University of Leiden, Marleen Hengeveld established AMMA Jewellery in 2003. Mostly inspired by art, technique and the beauty of precious materials, Marleen combines age-old techniques with modern-day design. This fusion results in contemporary pieces of jewellery which shows a fine and delicate craftsmanship. They are often born out of endless motions of repetition, driven by an urge for regularity, some romance and a passion for detail. A passion she already had as a little girl, attracted by intricate and refined pieces of art like antique jewellery and Asian laquer work, treasures she was always hunting for at her grandparents house.
Marleen sometimes bewonders her urge for creating such detailed works of art. Forcing her to focus, with the music at high volume concentrating on the tiniest detail, forgetting the world around her. And probably it’s just that.
