Meet the Goldsmith

 

Johanna Becker

     I am an artisan jeweler and goldsmith dedicated to the lost art of jewelry fabrication. I have a knack for being able to accurately interpret my clients' words and descriptions, and translating them into finished pieces that truly reflect each client's specific vision, ideas and desires.

    I was born into the art of jewelry fabrication starting at a young age in an eight-year apprenticeship with my father, Bouke Hollinga, a master gold and platinum smith. He continues to be my mentor to this day.

My specialty is making fine, hand-crafted jewelry in close collaboration with my clients. I take pleasure in exceeding expectations and in hearing my favorite 6 words when a client sees a finished piece for the first time: "That's exactly what I wanted!"
