For a German customer Yvonne designed and created a brooch.
There is only one.
Materials: South African Sterling Silver combined with natural bonded crushed rock/soil particles in different colours.
And suddenly, out of the blue, Yvonne sold for the first time a ring to somebody from 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 Jangle Dangle Earrings are a great success. The design is based on the mathematical calculations of the 12th century Italian scientist Fibonacci. Its fluent line attracts not only the eye but also adds comfort of wearing. The Jangle Dangle is made of South African Sterling Silver and soil/crushed rock particles in a wide variety of colours. The particles are grounded and naturally bonded together with the silver wire. They work as three balanced ‘pendants’ from the ear. If one looks at the final pieces, one will see how delicately, intricately and exquisitely each pendant hangs, individually, from a tiny common point. They are not soldered together; each of the three pendants somehow hangs perfectly in place. And in harmony with its opposite piece on the other ear.
New are the varieties of the ‘Jangle Dangle’ theme. Instead of three just two pendants; one set with the pendants bend to each other and the other directing in opposite sides. The shape of the stones can be a circle or a half circle and available in a variety of soil/rock colours. From the beginning of next month it’s possible to visit (after appointment) our ‘Private Gallery‘ in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa; about 90 minutes drive from Cape Town.
