Yvonne de Wit is my wife and together we run Studio98 in Napier, South Africa. Yvonne designs and create jewellery made of copper, Sterling Silver combined with natural bonded (no artificial resins) earth particles/pigments which she adds layer for layer in the designated parts of her jewellery. This is a very time consuming work.
As far as known she is the only jeweller in this specialism. It took her 2 years to discover (and experiment with) the right plant material to bind the earth/pigments to a solid, frost-, heat- and water-resistant stone.
This coming weekend we are part of of the art event Creative Napier where 14 artists from the village present their work in 10 locations.
