Born 1989, The Netherlands
Koen Jacobs is an Amsterdam based jewellery maker who is fascinated by the memories that jewellery can carry. His passion for nature and fascination for movement come together in a series of refined jewellery and marionettes that can really come to life.
Koen combines his craftsmanship as a professional gold and silversmith with the knowledge and research he has gained at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, where he successfully achieved his BA in art and design at the jewellery department in 2017. With his graduation work "The Artificial kingdom" he won the Overduin Award 2017 and Preziosa Young 2019. Koen participated in several exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad.
Since 2014 he is Ruudt Peters studio assistant.
