Trendy Places in Cape Town 3 (Helon Melon)

Many tourists to Cape Town visit the Waterfront. Alas … next to the Waterfront is the Watershed; a new building (with a yellow top gable). It’s one of those few places in the Mother City where one can buy truly South African made souvenirs. And unique these are!!! Unfortunately the Watershed is severely under-marketed by the tourism authorities and travel organisations. Pity, pity….

Helon Melon is one of those outlets in the Watershed. The owner and name-giver deals directly with the designers and crafts people who supply this shop. The prices are very reasonable.  Helon Melon also has some of her own staff engaged in creating unique pieces; from jewellery to clothing and everything in between.

Dhunga Earthworks Jewelry 'Made in Stanford'

This is just a first trial; more Trial & Error to follow.

Yvonne developed a way of binding earth particles in a natural environmental way. Combined with Sterling Silver and Swarovsky gems Yvonne creates jewelry under the ‘brand’ Dhunga Earthworks. And it’s selling (wholesale and retail via The Little Gem in Hermanus). Dhunga is Nepalese for Rock.

In due time she wants to market the jewelry via selected outlets on a global scale. But first she is busy with the creation of a new line of bracelets and necklaces. Prices of the different items vary from USA 50.00 to USD 300.00.

Packaging is ‘green’ and made of cotton and corrugated cardboard.
