In front of Sylvia Blickman's studio in Haarlem there are two large Hydrangea bushes, that are adorned with enormous flowers. When those flowers a few years ago at the end of the summer were blown into her studio, they were very much welcomed by Sylvia, as like they were jewels. That this would lead to new possibilities in her work and to new collections was still not foreseeable.

Sylvia is autonomous and quirky. Not in an extreme form, but sensitive to everything that is fragile : people, animals, plants. She always remains true to herself, follows her own feelings, naturally and associatively. With her jewellery designs – which she regards as small wearable works of art – she wants to convey this attention for the fragile, for the detail. For her it’s about experiencing happiness in small and unexpected things, by admiring, protecting, cherishing, immortalising and conveying.

The jewellery and objects of Sylvia Blickman can be found in renowned galleries at home and abroad and in various private and museum collections.
