Liza Koekkoek, behind her elegant line of Fine handmade jewelry
Born and raised in Guadalajara, Jalisco; Liza is the daughter of the dutch designer, Max Koekkoek; and her mother, one of the third generation of blown glass artisans.
Her childhood, surrounded by color and crafts at Tonalá, Jalisco; was reflected in an artistic environment, thanks to her parents and acquaintances.
At the age of fifteen, she had already a tremendous collection of gemstones; playing, drawing and designing under her father´s supervision.
It was natural that she would dedicate her life to art, so she moved to the Netherlands, at the age of seventeen, to begin her formal career as a professional goldsmith and gemologist.
