Doing something different with #jewellery. Yvonne de Wit (she is just setting up her own blog; the ‘about’ page is more or less finalised), co-incidentally my wife and love of a life-time ( ), creates jewellery of sterling silver and South African Earth (such a diversity). Pictured is a pendant in the shape of a Zulu shield with a Nguni hide of soil particles. This is one of the pieces of a new collection that will be marketed in the course of 2014. All jewellery is, piece after piece, purely handcrafted and every piece is unique with different patterns. Every #design is own.
While tourists are, en masse, directed to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden in Cape Town by the tourism industry; real garden lovers from abroad (who did their own home work) prefer to go to a garden one-and-a-half hour East of the ‘Mothercity’. No tourist banter like coffee shops, restaurants and Made-in-China-shops but a real more natural enjoyment with stunning views and only plants that originate (endemic) from this region (Overberg). The garden is situated in the oldest (official) nature reserve of South Africa.
Going through my archive I re-discovered this wonderful garden.
