Shalke is a Dutch born designer based in the UK.
After traveling the world extensively as a model she came to the UK in 2000 which she now calls her home. Travel, nature and her own cultural upbringing have become the center of her imagination. Her thirst for knowledge and to explore different cultures like the native americans or Maasai, just to name a few has been a great source of inspiration for her jewellery design. Her fashion background has given her the insight to create jewellery that is current, fun, wearable and long-lasting. Being self taught as a designer she was keen to expand her technical expertise and therefore started to take courses at Camberwell college of Art and at Flux Studios in Camberwell.
Her jewellery represents simplicity, it is meaningful, luxurious and very wearable. She uses semi precious stones, sterling silver, Gold filled findings, leathers and other precious materials in her designs.
Shalke jewellery is made with love for you.
