VJR JEWELS is a collection of handcrafted, timeless jewelry. The unique designs reflect the philosophy of recycling. The antique, vintage and natural “treasures” are handpicked and wondrous. They get a second life in every necklace, headpiece, brooch, earring and bracelet. VJR JEWELS whisper stories from the past.
Marianne Moerman has been collecting antiques and vintage objects almost her whole life. 20 years long she ran a well-known antique shop: ” De Woelmuis”. Traveling around to find the most beautiful antiques, she often bumped into discarded and broken ” beauties”, waiting for a second chance to dazzle.
Besides her passion to collect antiques, she also has a passion to create. Marianne is able to see the beauty of discarded items and has the ability to up-cycle them with an artistic flair, in unique pieces, inspired by the lovely collectables and past styles. She makes also in order and consultation, she can recycle your heirlooms and memorables into contemporary jewelry.
Marianne designs VJR Scarves to make more people enjoy the beauty of the treasures from the past. The handpicked collectables are printed on high-quality, fine cotton and handstitched scarves. Every scarf can be customized with charms, which make them also unique.
Marianne creates the possibility to enjoy the beauty of discarded items throughout time by designing VJR Jewels and VJR Scarves. Printing these designs on canvas and customizing them with real charms and decorations, makes another work of art. The tapestries can also be used for displaying your own VJR JEWELS.
