Mio Jewellery is located in the charming Haarlemmerstraat in Amsterdam. It was established in May 2002 by Myrna Floor and Jeroen Pasteuning, who are now happily married. Both of them started out as young goldsmiths who received their design education at the Vocational School for Goldsmiths. The workshop, situated at the back of the store, serves as the creative hub where they design and craft numerous exquisite pieces of jewellery, including their distinctive collection of contemporary wedding rings. In addition to their own collection, Mio Jewellery also showcases designs from other talented artists like Paul Finch, along with a selection of renowned watch brands such as Junghans and Jacob Jensen. Moreover, they welcome the opportunity to bring your own unique ideas to life through their custom design services.
Goldsmith – Designer
“Something creative”. That’s what I wanted after high school. And luckily a teacher told me about the Vocational School for Goldsmiths. Because when I stepped in there, I knew I was in the right place. The creativity, being active with your hands and creating something that was previously only in your head. I loved it and still do. At Mio, designing new collections is a big part of my job. New ideas usually don’t arise in the shop or behind the workbench. I like to swim in open water and walk a lot, preferably through the dunes. And during these moments, when my head is completely empty, new designs often bubble up. So I rarely leave the house without a sketchbook.
When I am not in nature or in our studio, you will probably find me at home with the children and the cat. If possible with a home-baked cake.
Goldsmith – Web designer
Being unsure about my path as a teenager, I enrolled in Amsterdam’s Vocational School for Goldsmiths. Surrounded by technique and creativity, I instantly fell in love with the goldsmith trade. When the opportunity arose in 2002 to acquire my former internship company’s studio, I didn’t have to think twice. At Mio, my responsibilities include crafting jewelry for customers, overseeing watch brand acquisitions, and managing our website. I also keep a close eye on developments in the area of LabGrown diamonds. If Myrna is working on new designs for our collection, I happily contribute my technical expertise.
While this profession remains my true passion, you will not always find me at the workbench. At night, you will often find me on the volleyball court with my team, and weekends are dedicated to maintaining our joint city vineyard, ensuring a fruitful harvest for our own wine.
