ABOUT

Jewelbox was founded by Annika Ingelaere (°1971). She attended a training in graphic- and advertising design at St. Lucas Gent and goldsmithing at the Acadamy of Sint-Niklaas. Today, she is still retraining.
She loves creating, but also passing on knowledge. That’s why she exhibits regularly her creations and organises workshops.

    The Beginning

    My mother organised jewellery exhibitions and I was fascinated by that.
    After my education as Master in the Visual Arts, I started following goldsmithing at the SASK.

  • September 2010

    Start of Jewelbox

    Not everyone has the space and the materials, but the desire to manufacture jewellery. From this idea, I founded Jewelbox. 

  • August 2015

    Acquaintance with enamel

    For several years, I searched for a link between jewellery and the graphical. I followed an amazing workshop in Idar-Oberstein (Germany), led by Danni Schwaag. From that moment, I was attached to enamel.

    The workshop became too small and the urge to expand too big.

I got to know cast porcelain during a workshop with Willemijn de Greef in France. I was already plying with silversmiths. The combination with porcelain results in a fragile flower

Maybe you have some old gold jewellery at home that just lie there.

What a shame!

I’d like to talk over the possibility to transform the old gold into a new jewel.

The series “Roses” started from an idea to edify, together with my mother, an exhibition around the fusion of Ikebana with Jewelbox. We both work with roses.

The series “Twin rings” started with the wooden ring. My youngest song came home with some pieces of wood and I started to drain them in silver. Later, I searched for nice stones and boulders to drain them and merge them again.

For several years, I searched for a link between jewellery and the graphical and thanks to enamel, I found this link. I can paint with the powders, the colours, the transparencies … I learned the technique in Idar-Oberstein (Germany) from Danni Schwaag. In the beginning, I searched for the boundary between art and kitsch. By combining several materials (raw stones, wood, silver …), I retrieved the balance.

A jewel that is easily adaptable to your outfit?

Cool for men, distinguished for women!

Ikaya creates handmade bracelets in silver or copper.

Combined with a qualitative leather strap in one of the 25 colours to your size.

Closionné and working with Enamels on Fine Silver with Jennifer Wells

In this four-day course we will cover an explorative introduction to working with transparent enamels on Fine Silver (.999). The historical technique of Cloisonné will be demonstrated and discussed through presentations. Participants will have the choice to create their own cloisonné or learn on a pre-designed piece.  Learning to work with transparent enamels on fine silver, and how layers and colors play together and can lead to different results will be a large part of the Cloisonné piece. Once a basic understanding of the transparent colors is established, we will begin to sift, paint, stencil and draw using different materials and techniques. All techniques have the possibility to be combined into a single piece but can also be used as singular elements. Everyone should expect to leave with at least two finished enamel pieces or a variety of experimental works to further feed their own studio practice.

Pin mechanisms and brooch back design by Daniela Malev:
Broche

In the field of contemporary jewellery the brooch is the most common, and also much discussed, form of jewellery. One of the special challenges of making a good brooch is to find an adequate solution for the pin which connects the piece securely to the body yet, goes beyond being a merely functional and invisible device on the backside to becoming an essential part of the brooch in terms of content and aesthetics.
Daniela is convinced that mechanism and attachment of a brooch hold tremendous potential for the design of a brooch in its entirety and needs to be developed with equal importance.
This Masterclass will initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms. You will be introduced to a variety of brooch back mechanisms and learn how to realize them technically. Daniela will guide you through various exercises on different needle techniques and ways of thinking about what a needle can be and how it can be solved. You will learn and understand, that the brooch back mechanism should be thought of, and integrated, during the complete creative process of a brooch.
