bespoke handmade jewellery made to tell your story
A little bit about myself
Hello, I’m Judith Peterhoff, the designer-maker behind Judith Peterhoff Jewellery. I create bespoke handmade jewellery that tells a story.
My jewellery is often inspired by my personal history and family and of course my customers. Keeping stories alive and keeping a moment in a piece of jewellery is what I believe in. I love working on bespoke orders, for which I design hand-in-hand with my customers, so why not let me help you tell your story?
My BoulBoulle collection, made with delicate beads of precious metal, is named after my mother’s maiden name, which means ‘big ball, small balls’. Symbolising the relationship between mother and children. Why not have a browse through my BoulBoulle Collection to get an idea of the quirky yet elegant style of my pieces?
Inspired by my niece’s port-wine stain, the Skins Collection showcases the little flaws on us, that make us unique. Celebrating the freckles on our nose and the moles on our cheeks, the skins collection shows the beauty in the unusual. The collection explores the ancient technique of chasing and repoussé and different way of tarnishing metal. The collection includes bangles, earrings, rings and necklaces.
The Decorio Collection takes inspiration from the human form, showcasing the natural beauty in the elements that make us unique. Organic textures evolve from classic jewellery structures. Using my unique take on the technique of chasing, I work from flat sheets of metal forging them into three dimensional forms to look as though they have grown, embellishing them with gemstones.
I found my passion for contemporary jewellery studying at the Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht. After graduating, I moved to London, where I have worked in the jewellery trade for seven years. I hand-make my jewellery in my North London studio. I also work with CAD to design on a computer which can be a more cost effective way of creating your jewellery piece. CAD stands for Computer Aided Design, and with the help of a very smart programme, I can create jewellery designs so that you can see what the finished piece looks like before it’s even made.
What my customers said about my jewellery…
“I asked Judith to design a necklace for my friend’s birthday and I had only some vague idea of the design. She picked up on that very easy and made a beautiful necklace, which was better than I had imagined it to be! I was really happy.”
“I commissioned a necklace from Judith for my sister’s birthday. It was beautifully made, completely unique, and it totally made her day.”
“I recently purchased Judith’s beaded ring, gold with black rhodium plating and it’s beautiful! She took my colour combination and preferred bead size and I now have a gorgeous bespoke piece of jewellery. Thank you Judith xxx”
“My wife was absolutely surprised and loves the necklace. It’s exactly her style, especially the length. Everybody asks where I got the necklace from.”
“I was so happy when I collected the ring, everything was perfect. Thanks so much Judith for creating something unique and special for my future wife.”
