Gild Atelier – Handmade contemporary jewelry
After finishing her education at the ‘Vakschool’ Schoonhoven, Sophie Teppema worked for jewelry gallerys. By chance she was able to get a small shop space in a great location and made the move to shop owner herself.
The shop is located in the most central point of Amsterdam: Dam Square. It is attached to the Nieuwe Kerk [church turned museum] giving the shop a characteristic charm. After four years shop is doing well and attracts locals, expats and tourists alike.
GILD atelier only uses high quality 925 silver. We also carefully select pearls and precious stones for certain designs making sure these are in keeping with the high quality of materials and workmanship we use in our products.
Gild Atelier jewelry is hand made using different goldsmiths techniques like soldering, pouring, setting all by hand to find out more have a look at our BLOG.
The shop is now closed and Sophie is travelling over the winter for inspirations and to learn old and new methods of goldsmithing around south east Asia and Australia.
