[New Orchid Gallery] Sophie Teppema

Sophie Teppema
Gild Atelier
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Gild Atelier was founded in 2008 by me, Sophie Teppema. After
finishing my education at the ‘Vakschool’ Schoonhoven [the only
school in The Netherlands for gold and silver smithing], I worked
for several jewelry gallery’s. By chance I was able to get a small
shop space in a great location and decided to make the move to shop
owner myself.

The shop is located at the most central point of Amsterdam, Dam
Square. It is attached to the Nieuwe kerk [church turned museum]
giving the shop a characteristic charm. The shop is doing well after
4 years and attracts locals, expats and tourists alike.

My design aesthetic has changed over the years always keeping a
delicate simplicity to my work. I now create very fine pieces made
with a subtle shimmer. This effect is often created by repetition of
shapes to create structure. At the moment my biggest inspiration is
lines i’m looking for them everywhere! I like to see how they create
shapes that can be translated into my work.
