Hoogenboom & Bogers is a fine jewellery design duo, started by Heleen Hoogenboom and Sanne Bogers in 2015. Heleen Hoogenboom has been a jewellery designer and goldsmith since 1987, Sanne Bogers since 2011.
Before they started their joint business, Heleen has had a gallery in Utrecht from 1987 until 1992 and in Bilthoven until 2015.
Heleen and Sanne sell their work solely in their store annex studio in Bilthoven.
Hoogenboom & Bogers specializes in fine jewellery. Heleen and Sanne only work in recycled or Fairtrade gold, use conflict free diamonds and high quality natural gemstones and pearls. Every piece in their collection is handmade and unique. They don’t make multiples.
They love creating small and delicate works of art. Over the years they have developed their own style. At this time they focus on two collections: Threads of life and Synergy. Both of the collections are completely different, but still work so well together. Heleen and Sanne can express their selves in these two collections. Tell the stories from life, from the joy, the laughter, the magical moments, to the sad, the difficult and life chancing experiences.
In the Threads of Life collection, the threads symbolize life. The intertwining threads and pieces of molten gold or spheres represents an event in life. Together they form a delicate balance. The name for this collection came from Sannes father. He wrote the poem "The Threads of Life" when he had chosen a threads ring as an anniversary present for her mother. Every piece whether it is a ring, earring, pendant or pin is unique, not one is the same.
In the Synergy collection it is all about the synergy between the flame, the gold, the gemstones, pearls and Heleen and Sanne as makers. The structures they create in the gold are never the same, just like life itself. The gemstones and pearls they use all tell their own stories, through their colour, the light they reflect and how they form a balance with the gold.
