South African Creatives: Jewellery Design

First up is the lovely Karin, the lady behind Dear Rae, who is a very talented jewellery designer. Located in the Woodstock Foundry, her studio/store is a light and spacious place that showcases her delicate jewellery beautifully. I bought each of my bridesmaids a different gold Dear Rae bracelet as a thank you present for their help with my wedding and they loved them. I highly recommend a visit.

The Pichulik brand is known for its bold statement jewellery that combines colourful rope, metal, beads and bones in a beautifully ornate way. Her latest Autumn/Winter 2013 collection was shoot by Kope Figgins.

Famke is the brainchild of Cape Town creative Famke Koene, whose bone-inspired works are beautifully macabre.

I found out about Milame Handmade Designs relatively recently. The lady behind the label is jewellery designer Emma Atkinson, who has a lovely shop just off Kloof Street selling many beautiful trinkets. Her jewellery is very reasonably priced and she is open to custom commissions.
