I’m an Artisan Silversmith, and I work from home in Somerset West. This wonderful jewellery journey started as a hobby when I moved to the Middle East with my husband, and has blossomed into my third career, starting in Saudi Arabia, then Abu Dhabi, UAE and now in Cape Town. I’ve done various training courses in South Africa and London, and I use You Tube as a wonderful resource too.
My jewellery is all solid sterling silver and I sometimes use gold as an accent in my designs. I make jewellery that I like to wear, and I also like to try different ideas, so it’s not the kind of jewellery you’d find in an everyday store.
Authenticity is very important to me, so nothing is plated or vermeil, and the stones are all real stones, sourced from all over the world.
After living in Abu Dhabi, UAE for 5 years, we returned to South Africa in January 2019, and I’ve now set up my workshop at home in Somerset West and have been selling my jewellery at the markets around Cape Town.
I’m a very happy granny to 4 gorgeous grandchildren, wife to the best husband, and lucky stepmom to 2 beautiful children. Loving my new life in the gorgeous Somerset West, with the most stunning views out of my window, for me to gaze upon every day.
