“Mijn moeder ging nooit de deur uit zonder parels.
Zij was de inspiratiebron voor de creaties die ik ontwerp.”

Nicolette Bénard is a Dutch designer. After studying at the Vakschool Schoonhoven, she worked for many years as a gold and silversmith before transitioning to become a visual artist. With a wink and a healthy dose of humor,

Nicolette turns her icons into handmade sculptures that are both intriguing and funny. Her artwork is an ode to the beauty of imperfection and invites interpretation and imagination. Nicolette’s art has received multiple awards, and she showcases her work at art exhibitions, galleries, and events around the world.
