So here you all are – 1 slideshow of the whole shebang – the range, the pieces, the work put on show at Design Indaba last weekend. It was a wonderful wonderful experience and a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello, to have a look, and to those who bought pieces – may you enjoy every second of wearing them!

For those of you who are intersted in more information – here are the colours of cord, and a selection of coral or turquoise. I love making each piece slightly different, and this is constantly helped by suppliers changing their stock! If you have special requests, colours or favourite stones – let me know.

one week to go…

…to Design Indaba! Everything seems to be going according to plan – in its own way.  BUT there simply is not enough time to do every thing AND post snazzy pics here, so I’ll generously give you a link to my Exhibitor page on the DI site, and invite you to come and say hello at Stand 33.01, if you are in Cape Town from 01 March – 04 March. (do feel free to bring cake and lashings of ginger pop!)

D says… keep a cool head

Dum dum dum… Design Indaba! I am super excited to have been given funding by SEDA and the CCDI to exhibit at DI from 2 ~ 4 March. But hells bells, there is a lot to do and time, weirdly, doesn’t seem to be waiting. Very strange.

BUT, it will all be Fine ~ and Fun ~ and Fabulous…

Now, I leave you with some process pics and look forward to seeing you at stand 33.01

These pieces have been made to be sent  to Debs Digby and the Art of Africa Gallery , Buckinghamshire, UK. I was so fortunate to meet Debs on her annual buying trip to Cape Town, and am chuffed beyond belief to have work in her gallery!

An excerpt from her website can explain the gallery far better than I:

“Art of Africa was founded in January 1991 by Zimbabwean Deborah Norman, in Walton Street, London. After three happy years, marriage and an impending baby saw it relocate to its present location at Fillingdon Farm, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling in the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire.

Since 1994, Art of Africa has annually presented two large mixed group exhibitions, in May/June and November at Fillingdon Farm, and is open by appointment for the remainder of the year. Each exhibition opens on a Saturday and runs for nine days until the end of the following Sunday, from 10am – 5pm.

Every exhibition is a combination of work by both new and familiar artists, with two common threads. Firstly, each artist has a link with Africa; most live there, but some travel out to paint or sculpt. Secondly, all work is original handcraft, made where possible from the natural materials for which Africa is famed; stone, silver, cotton, clay, wood, mohair, leather etc.”
