About

Step into the magical world of Els Louwette and get enchanted by unique, original and surprising jewellery.
Els graduated from the master of jewel design and goldsmith art at the Provinciale Hogeschool in Hasselt (Belgium), where she perfected her extra-ordinary craftsmanship. Her graduate collection ‘Els in Wonderland’ will still make your heart skip a beat and guide you through the wonders of her creative mind.
Els is well on her way in becoming the next big thing in the jewellery scène. From contributing to the 2 editions of the pop-up store of Fashion Across Borders to being showcased at several expos, this quirky young woman will dazzle you with her innovation, use of colour and sense of on-trend design.

Her most recent multiple brand ‘Lou Bijou’ contains fun, modern pieces of jewellery that are constructed through contemporary techniques such as 3D printing and laser cutting. Els opted to use plexiglas, polyester and other materials in combination with silver for her creations. For some pieces, she drew inspiration from her graduate project, which she transformed in a highly accessible collection.
‘Lou Bijou’ will seduce the hip customer with its witty designs and accessible prizes. This collection will be sold by different stores and is also for sale online.

Did your heart skip a beat hearing all about Els’s designs but couldn’t quite find what you’re looking for? Don’t hesitate to contact her and find out what she can do to make all your jewellery dreams come true.
