“Now I am dressed! Thank you Dear Valentine”

Well …. I started 2019 in slow motion and ended up high speed. The last week of December I had time to contemplate and yes; 2020 is a new year with lots of opportunities. I think more unique single pieces and limited series. No casting; all handmade from scratch (from melting sterling silver pellets to the shaping of every single piece).
The second line (recycling) is in an upwards trend amongst the group between 40 and eternity.
Another activity is workshops where groups between 5 and 10 participants learn to make jewellery from treasures of the sea such as shells, driftwood and kelp. The first bookings (including from overseas) are in. It’s an ideal opportunity for people who want to celebrate their birthdays in an unusual setting, for corporate functions and for more adventurous travellers who want to avoid the tourist traps, etc. etc.
Anyways here a compilation of a few new designs of last year, some ‘bestsellers’ and activities such as workshops and displays at art events and so on.
For the third year in succession I participate in the ‘Favourite Things Market’ at Gabrielskloof in Botrivier. This is an upmarket event where people from different parts of South Africa and from abroad do their Christmas shopping.
Some of my designs are also online available at Hello Pretty
First there is the ‘Down-to-Earth’ collection; made of Sterling Silver combined with naturally bonded earth- and rock particles. These go together with own design and handmade packing.
Next to the Down-to-Earth collection I recycle old metals into new jewellery and I make sculptures. See for yourself:
