Marie-José Hoeboer was trained at the Gerrit Rietveld-Academy in Amsterdam. She graduated in 1991 as a Bachelor of Fine Arts and has been creating jewellery ever since. Her work shows a lot of variety in materials and techniques used, but there is one important ever-present feature: her sparkling ideas. She will not be satisfied with a piece until all elements work together, thus creating strong images and appealing jewellery. She continues to surprise us and often leaves us with a smile on our face. Take a look at her web-site www.rie-jo.com and you’ll know what we mean. This girl definitely hits the gold!
