Kornelia is the jewelry brand of Karolien. Karolien grew up crafting, dancing, playing music, studying art and spending a lot of time outdoors! Her parents ran a small store at their home, with wooden toys, dolls, teddy bears and children's books.
All of these things still influence her work as an adult: with the kornelia jewelry she wants to create pieces that make your inner child do a happy dance! Most of her jewelry is figurative and storytelling.
Karolien is a trained jewelry designer and goldsmith. All pieces are made in her own studio in Belgium by herself and sometimes she gets the help of her husband (who wants to quit his boring job and work with her fulltime). They use recycled gold and silver from a local refinery and work as eco-friendly as they can.
