In the summer of 2012, Pauline Barendse was invited by Nicole Uniquole to meet (then) the Queen of the Netherlands, Beatrix. During the tour in Palace Oranienbaum, where the work of Barendse was exhibited, she had an opportunity to explain her work to the Queen.
I like to:
– use precious materials with new techniques
– use new materials with old techniques
– enjoy my jewellery
– feel the pleasure I have in creating
– made by hand, made by heart
