Studio Patina is 

For makers, a platform to bring their ideas from paper to life

For wearers, a spot in the heart of Amsterdam for finding an original selection of jewellery

We love craft and believe that the ancient profession of goldsmithing deserves to be rediscovered and brought back to life, engaging in new production methods along with changing aesthetic and philosophical considerations.


In addition to welcoming artists and designers for production related advice and assistance, the studio also offers a platform for young professionals within the field to get started on a working bench.

The current residents of the studio are:

Sandra Savelli / Founder Studio Patina / Jewellery –

Julia Bocanet / Jewellery, Conceptual Design –

Robert Mirka / Jewellery –

Toms Lucans / Jewellery, Product Design
