Sterling silver combined with natural bonded earth. On display at Studio on 98 in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa.
New series of necklace figurines in the making. South African Sterling Silver combined with natural bonded earth minerals. All own design and handmade from scratch the old fashioned way. These new figurines will be presented at the Baardskeerdersbos Art Route (18-19 April) where I am the guest artist of Amanda Isadora Jephson.

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.
