Like many craft-type professions, it is family where Vincent Cober at age 14 learnt the tools of his trade. In his case, it is his mother and the trade is jewellery. Now at the age of 47, Cober is one prolific jeweller, based in the South of the Netherlands in the city of Oss. One never to shy away from new developments, the ‘Ossenaar’ (as inhabitants of Oss are called) never sits still and talks about his profession with a level of passion that hints it never faded away for even a moment. A hummingbird is part of Cober’s logo and there is a good reason for Vincent Cober to choose that as somewhat of a mascot.
