Take a look at my new jewellery webshop.

You can order your own product, project or ship in silver!

   

Take a look at the program Dutch local TV station TVNoord made in my workshop on the 13th of dec. 2011.

 
   

My name is Marten Lenstra, I live and work in Middelstum, a little village in the North of the Netherlands.

In 1970 I went to the "Vakschool Schoonhoven", the only school in Holland for gold -and silversmiths. I have degrees as goldsmith and as silversmith. This gives me the right to have a Makers Mark to put on my work next to the hallmarks.

After a year's apprenticeship in 1976 I started my own shop in 1977.

In thirty years I did a lot of jewelry repairs and commissions for jewelry, weddingrings, diamondrings and so on.

Later on I got more and more orders for modelships, oil-rigs and yachts.

A lot of the models I made are shown on this website.
