Ans Houben (1986) is a young jewelry designer from Antwerp. She studied at the Royal Academy of fine Arts in Antwerp, and at the Mad Faculty in Hasselt.
Houben is a leading example of a new generation of designers who love to experiment with different shapes and techniques. When designing her jewelry she will always seek for special shapes that however are simple and powerful, and starting from a two-dimensional view or outline. By using techniques like folding, bending or joining different elements she is able to create a true personal and unique imagery.
All jewelry is handmade, designed and finished in her own atelier in Antwerp
