Contemporary jewellery with a twist

  • • Marc fuses modern metals with traditional gems
  • • Innovation plays a big part in his designs
  • • His craft has culminated in prestigious awards

It did not take much convincing for Marc Lange to choose a career in goldsmithing, since he was lured by the techniques, the beautiful materials and the creativity involved, whilst attending the Vocational School of Goldsmiths in Amsterdam. Specialising in the combination of modern materials such as titanium and black zirconium with traditional precious metals, like yellow, red and white gold and platinum. Marc implements techniques that he learned during his training, such as sawing, milling, forging, soldering, drilling, and polishing – but he also uses innovative techniques that bring a contemporary dimension to his production. For Marc, a piece is well made when it is technically and aesthetically correct, but also when it is comfortable to wear.

‘Toothpaste Bracelet’

Marc often jokes that he was inspired by the tube of toothpaste he stood on one morning. This is a purely imagined shape entangled at a substantial level of difficulty with barely flexible titanium. The object is decorated with a self-developed 'lava technique' in gold.

Mikado bracelet

With this bracelet Marc was inspired by the famous Mikado game. The straight lines are arranged in a playful, illogical way creating a contrasting spectacle. The diamonds sparkle against the subdued matt materials. The piece exudes glamour without being gaudy.
