Van der Straeten started experimenting with jewelry while still an art student at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. By 1985, barely 20, he had already found an agent in Japan and was showing his jewelry to high-end stores in New York. Van der Straeten’s style combines meticulous craftsmanship with sculptural materials. The metal is always hand-wrought, then covered with a fine layer of 24-carat gold. That is what gives it a timeless aspect. The pieces have the feel of ancient civilizations, with a modern, graphic simplicity
