The finishing touch of a woman — Studio 98

Studio98

Studio98 (link opens in new window) is where my wife Yvonne de Wit and I live and work. It’s also accessible for visitors. Here you see Yvonne’s handmade jewellery that she designs herself and makes from scratch. It are all original designs and she is the only one (as far as we know) who makes jewellery of South African Sterling Silver combined with natural bonded earth minerals and pigments. See for yourself.

Photo models: Nina, Sheila, Maryam and Rachel

The first 101 days …

…. but still many more days to go by the (political) looks of it.

I have documented the first 101 days of lockdown in South Africa. All black and white pictures shot in and around our village (Napier, Western Cape).

The lockdown has eased a bit and we were able to open our gallery again.

You are welcome to visit and see a new series of jewellery and haiku photographs.

Workshop jewellery making

My wife Yvonne during one of her workshops. It’s a creative workshop where people learn to make jewellery of beach findings as kelp, sea weed, shells, driftwood, etc.

What a well organised event. 70 artists around the village and we (me and my wife Yvonne) were in the center of it all; in the Art Hall.

Local Talent

Napier (South Africa) has got talent; we all saw that recently with the theatre spectacle ‘Wonderland’ in the School of Skills in Napier (next posting).

A talent is also Abigail Camille. Many know her as one of the faces of ‘Pascal of Napier’ (local cuisine). I’ve used her a few times as a model and although she still has to learn a few tricks she’s got the potential to become a great photo model (if she wants) 
Abigail Camille has many faces and goes up in different surroundings like a chameleon. I had the privilege to work with her on several occasions this year (with thanks to a.o. Vanilla Boutique and Jeremy Shoe Repair and Locksmith in Bredasdorp and Yvonne de Wit Jewellery in Napier (Okay; the last one does not count for she is my wife for life . Soon I hope to work again with her and if everything works out she will have the opportunity in the beginning of 2020 to learn a few tricks-of-the-trade from a well known African super model with whom I have another session.
