What’s in a name?

Afrikaners call it a ‘Skoenlapper’ but I’ve never seen a ‘Vlinder’ (=Dutch) repairing a shoe. 
The English name it ‘Butterfly’. 
Have you ever seen one on butter?

See yesterday’s picture (scroll back to second post below)

In the meantime I figured out via Facebook that not many villagers know about the name.

 

Made in South Africa

A combination of natural bonded South African soil and South African Sterling Silver; very time consuming to create but each piece of this kind of jewellery art is unique and is complemented with a certificate with the name of the owner as model-name.

People from outside South Africa love it. Unfortunately many South Africans, so it seems, are not very proud of ‘Made in South Africa’….
