Selma just loves jewellery…
When she was only a tiny Selma, she found herself in her mothers gemstone store admiring all the beautiful earrings and necklaces her mother made. She very quickly learned how to recognise the right qualities and how to hand make the most beautiful creations. This is why starting Primrose was the obvious choice for her.
To her every piece she makes represents a story. This is the biggest joy she gets from working with jewellery. Wondering what beautiful adventures all her creations are going to travel to next. She believes you create your own stories in your life, and you can create your own beautiful world… this belief is what she puts into every piece she makes💗
Selma loves going out on a warm summer day and wandering the lovely Amsterdam streets and parks. Her favourite food is sushi and her favourite movie is The Notebook (she cries every time she watches it🙈).
Selma’s favourite piece is the Golden Wing Earring because to her it represents the freedom to fly away and begin your own adventure 😊
