The 20th edition of SIERAAD Art Fair will open its doors May 18 at 13.00 hrs. @Westergas Gashouder in Amsterdam. The Gashouder is our location since 2008.  At the right you see our new campaign for this May, designed by Linda Zoon, she used a ring made by Aletta Teunen.  Aletta was inspired by the typical Dutch facades and canal houses, as seen in cities such as Amsterdam and Utrecht.                                                                                                                                      We are super happy with this sparkling campaign image. In the coming weeks, we will start introducing some of our participants.


SIERAAD a very special fair where artists from all over the world sell their jewellery directly and in person to shops, galleries and consumers SIERAAD Art Fair presents; unique, personally designed and crafted pieces of jewellery Here, the emphasis is on jewellery as pieces of art in which ideas are packaged in materials such as rubber, textile, photos, plastics, wood or ceramics, as well as silver and gold. Also on display will be traditional pieces of art produced by contemporary silver and goldsmiths. Artist-designers from all corners of the globe, including highly talented emerging designers from internationally acclaimed academies, will be exhibiting exciting work not found anywhere else.

Extranalities – Pictureware

Saskia van Es – 24 mei 2022

Extranalities is a group of established jewellery artists who challenge each other with unusual assignments. The participants have already sent each other something unattractive from their own possessions, to turn into something beautiful. And vice versa. All kinds of assignments, even entire mood boards, ended up on the workbenches of unsuspecting colleagues. 

Glass Jewellery

Saskia van Es – 18 mei 2022

The characteristics of glass give jewellery something that other materials cannot match. The makers are often double talents: they can both handle glass and make good jewellery.  

Korea is hot

SASKIA VAN ES – April 4 2022

Korea is hot

If there is one country in the spotlight, it is Korea. Pop music, ceramics, design and jewellery are all equally hot. The group of six well-known Korean contemporary jewellery designers, Secon Lab, is no exception. Half of the group bases their work on traditional jewellery materials. The other half explores non-traditional materials such as leather, textiles and plastics. There is a constant exchange between new and established artists in the group. Materials and techniques are critically examined. Does all the work resemble each other in the end? On the contrary. The artistic signature of each group member is strengthened by it.

Classic with a scoop of 2022.

Saskia van Es – 5 april 2022

Some designers are lucky enough to have an exquisite sense of design plus the technical skills to execute it perfectly. These four artists work with the classic jewellery materials gold, silver, precious stones and pearls. They use age-old goldsmithing techniques. And they add a scoop of 2022.

Photos hiding stories behind stories

By: Saskia van Es

You can no longer ask the somewhat stiff-looking ladies and the occasional gentleman. For whom had they made themselves so beautiful? Or even shown some sexy skin? 

Textiles and jewellery: literally a strong combination

By: Saskia Kolff- van Es

The combination of textile and jewellery remains a very strong one. Because textile is so colourful? Because it moulds to the body? Because it is comfortable and protects you? Because it is slow art, made by endlessly repeating certain actions? This year, we can indulge ourselves. At least four artists use the primal material in their jewellery.

Het virtuele sieraad. Virtual jewellery.

Virtual jewellery. Twenty years ago, Tjep. stood out with a pendant consisting of 100 stacked gold logos in the shape of a cross. Brands were the new religion. Now Tjep. has re-released this piece of jewellery. The logos have changed too. Besides Unilever and MTV,...

Testimonial by Liisa Hashimoto, Japan

I have been exhibiting at Sieraad for five years now, sharing the stand with Iris from Insync Design. Every year I enjoy meeting all the artists from different countries, and meeting every year is like a reunion. In Japan, unfortunately, contemporary jewelry is not known too much to the public, so it is a good opportunity for me to see other artists’ works and exchanging information about the jewelry. As to the customers coming to Sieraad, I find many of them coming back every year. And usually they will kindly come back to our stand and enjoy looking at our new works of art. So, I try to show my works in a different way with different themes every year, always discussing with Iris how to display our stand. By exhibiting at Sieraad, I have been learning and thinking about the way of showing and selling my pieces, combining one-off pieces and production lines. It is not easy, but it is a good experience for me. Exhibiting at Sieraad is always my pleasure every year.

Testimonial by Rachel Butlin, GB

First of all I would just like to say a huge thank you to Astrid and Maarten for an amazing show and time at Sieraad this year! Sieraad is a show I’ve always dreamed about being at and I was overjoyed this year to be accepted to exhibit. From day one the communication and organisation has been above and beyond and definitely made the lead up to the show alot easier as a first time overseas exhibitor. The show exceeded my expectations in every way from set up to visual appearance, visitors and response to my work. There was a wonderful mix of visitors from affluent public to international galleries, bringing a wealth of interest to our stand. I feel that the stand appearance and layout gives great visual variety and allows each participant to create their own stamp on the show by choosing colour and layout, which definitely sets this apart from other shows I’ve done. It was such a great pleasure to meet, network and socialise with so many other participants, creating relationships im sure will last on into the future. I was overjoyed with the response of my work at the show and it was lovely to receive such lovely comments and feedback from the Dutch public. Sieraad isn’t just a show, its a wonderful experience full amazing exhibitors, warm smiles, stunning jewellery and great visitors. Once again I would like to thank you all for such a great experience and i look forward to hopefully showing again with you soon.
