Yvonne de Wit completed her academic art study in 1990.

In 2000 she and her husband came to live in South Africa. Fascinated by the flora and fauna they restored an historical succulent garden. During this time Yvonne became inspired by the pallet of colours of diverse landscapes. She collected stones and soils from a wide range of locations for more than a decade. She transforms her collection with Sterling Silver into jewellery.

Every unique handcrafted piece is a reflection of a landscape somewhere in South Africa and an Ode to Mother Earth.

Her second range has a more industrial character; transforming scrap metals intro retro-style earrings, rings and bracelets.

Since April 2016 Yvonne has her studio in Napier in the Western Cape; about 90 minutes drive from central Cape Town.
