Two Lovely Antwerp Shops in Two Parts: Twee

Recently I took a walk to a little gallery/studio/workshop space near Beyond Fashion called "Twee." Twee which means "two" in Dutch is owned by jewelers Lotte De Mey and Nathalie Perneel. I really wanted to see the space and meet Lotte and Nathalie and needing to use a rolling mill was a great excuse to get myself there...Lotte was kind enough to agree to let me come over and after I flattened some wire, we had a coffee and a nice visit. Lotte and Nathalie are both studio artists and teach a variety of jewelry making classes. They also host guest instructors and exhibitions in the gallery part of the space alongside their own work. Currently the work of Nevin Arig is on view.

Twee is located at Graaf van Egmontstraat 33, 2000 Antwerp, Belgium and you can also find it on Facebook.
