It all started as a
We met in an airplane, on the first day of – what was supposed to be a solo trip – around the world. Crazy in love we didn’t leave each other side since then. Bali stole our hearts because of its creativity & ancient culture. Spending more time here, became our dream. This magical island inspired me to follow my childhood passion: jewelry. And so the story continues...
What we believe
Fair jewelry, fair price.
We believe everything starts with a dream. And when you follow that dream it gets stronger. A little stronger every day. If you keep following your dream it becomes real. We know it can be hard sometimes. And it’s easy to start doubting. That is why we created Flawed. A reminder to follow that dream.
With every collection we launch, we aim to create a new dream world. A place where fantasy meets art. A place where everything is possible. We work together with the best creative talents to capture that dream. It comes alive in graphics, art, and photos and we let you experience it through our jewelry.
We spend three months a year in Bali, literally sitting next to our craftsmen, capturing our dreams in jewelry. Inspiring you to follow your own dreams. Because if we can do it, you can too. Our jewelry is a physical reminder to follow your dream!
“I love visiting the workplaces of the families. They are so positive and always happy to show us what they made. The kids always ask us to practice English with them.“
“My favourite road in Bali is the one from Ubud to Celuk when we are on our way to Wayan.”
"The moment my designs come to life is so special to me! My favourite part is seeing our silversmiths working from their family homes, with the birds singing in the back and the kids playing around."
“Bali is full of creativity and energy. While we are there, we’re always creating. If it’s we’re not designing new jewelry, we design something else like sculptures for our shoot or anything else we can come up with.”
"Stone hunting is one of my favourite parts of the process. Strolling around to find the best gems, and hand selecting them one by one."
"Our craftsmen are not only business partners, but also close friends. We know their families, are present during ceremonies, play with their kids and have dinner together. Over dinner, we share ideas on how we can not only design a better product but also have an impact on both of our lives."
“We spend at least three months in Bali every year. We discuss new designs and work side by side with the team of silversmiths every day. We accidentally got them addicted to Dutch stroopwafels.”
"So many beautiful ancient rituals that are still present on a daily basis. We live the lives of our craftsmen for a few months every year. There is so much more than only work!"
"By focusing on slow fashion, awareness and transparency. We are determined to showing you the real image. To take you with us, showing you the life of the people who make your jewelry."
“Since we started to learn Indonesian, the conversations with the silversmiths even got more fun. They’re so surprised when they find out we speak their language and react with a smile from ear to ear. ”
“Handcrafted by craftsmen in their family homes. We avoid mass production and support fair & slow fashion.”

"What I like best is that I can work from my own workshop at home. While working I listen to Rindik music, with birds singing in my garden. This way I can see my grandchildren playing and growing up. My home is 100m from the river. Whenever I feel stressed I go fishing to clear my mind. I’m specialized in sizing rings. My wife has better eyes than me and helps to solder small details."

"I love my healthy balance between family, ceremonies and work. I work with deadlines so I can plan my own time and decide for myself if I want to spend more time with my kids that day or work more. My speciality is polishing items. I love the simple items like the Daisy Ring or Contour Ring because they have a flat surface I can make them extremely shiny!"

"It was my dream to become a skilled silversmith, just like my father. I feel proud to follow him in his footsteps. My father taught me this skill when I was young, but I am still learning new things every day. I work together with my wife, at our family home. It makes me feel good when I see people wearing something I made. My favourite item is the Black Dahlia Ring."
