Out of the blue

And suddenly, out of the blue, I sold for the first time a ring to somebody from  nearby Bredasdorp.

There is this English expression: ‘one sheep follows another’.
The Dutch say: “If there is one sheep over the barrier the rest will follow”.
Curious now if all women from Bredasdorp will wear one of her rings in a years time… 😉.

Since Bredasdorp is known for it rich agricultural life with many sheep this shouldn’t be much of a problem…. 😉

The ring is made of copper pipe (elements connected with Sterling Silver dowels) and South African soil particles (white) and crushed rock (in center). The soil- and rock particles are naturally bonded with plant material and is frost and heat resistant.

The ‘Fibonacci Meander’ and a sneaky preview before the opening

Private Gallery Napier

This afternoon is the (informal) official opening of Private Gallery. Yvonne is at the moment very much engaged in the display of her jewellery. One of the new items is a variety of the Fibonacci inspired range of ‘down to earth’ earrings: the ‘Fibonacci Meander’. Leonardo Fibonacci was a 12/13 century Italian mathematician. Many of Yvonne’s jewellery designs are based on Fibonacci’s ‘Golden Ratio‘.

A few more items as now on display (she will still be busy for a few hours 😉 ):

The sign is there …

… but the gallery officially opens Easter Sunday 16 April (only invited guests). From that date onwards bookings can be made. One of the targeted markets is the tourism stream between Cape Town and Cape Agulhas. The first contact with tour operators in Germany and independent tour guides in Cape Town are made. But we take it slowly.

Some details

Model (face not visible):  Maggy

Hopefully our Private Gallery in which my complete collection will be on display will be open (on appointment) from Easter onwards. The waiting is for the track lights … and who waits in the Western Cape, South Africa can sometimes wait a long, long time… 😉

Private Gallery is ideally situated in Napier along the main road between Cape Town and the Southernmost Tip of the African Continent. It’s an ideal stop over for travelers to see (and purchase) original South African Design jewellery made of treasures from the South African Earth next to framed high quality Overberg landscape photographs in suitcase format.
