'Pearls of Makkum' is a series of enlarged, smoothed and half pearls in porcelain, finished with various glazes and decorations. The ‘pearls’ can be bought as a complete necklace, or worn separately. It is also possible to design your own unique ‘pearl necklace’, thanks to the variations in form and colour. The beauty of the necklaces with their unique colours and glazes is further enhanced by the luxury box designed by Irma Boom, who is responsible for the brand and house style of our company.
In 2011 new ‘pearls’ were added to this successful series. This time Alexander van Slobbe was inspired by ‘costume jewellery’, in particular that of the 1960s and 1970s. In beautiful clear and warm colours on a dark-grey background, the pearls, this time partially painted by hand in the same colour as the pearls, can be strung on silk string into elegant necklaces with an almost graphic appearance.
