The first time I sent my jewellery to Artisan Gallery, I had to share a show case with three other jewellers for the "Local is Lekker" exhibition, before the world cup. This was in the beginning of May. Now I have a whole show case to myself.

Veronica Anderson held a five year celebration called "METAL METTLE" and I was choosen to take part at this exhibition. Considering the amount of time that I was given, i think that this necklace turned out very well.

One day international (woven commercial ring)

Sue(Artisan Gallery) phoned me on Saturday ordering a woven commercial ring, the customer saw the one which have a synthetic ruby that I delivered it last Wednesday, but the customer wanted a blue stone. The customer was leaving on Monday going to Cape town then returning to USA. So there I was on a Sunday morning at 6am at tech working on the ring, have to say I was being under pressure. I finished making it on that day, then on Monday went and bought a stone (iolite), took the ring for setting, the did a few touch ups, then I delivered it. Customer was very impressed, she loved it(",). I'm glad all worked out fine(peace)

Woven Commercial

this is one of the first ring I made from this woven commercial range, I'm trying to incorporate a stone/s (synthetic ruby) with the weaving and a signature shank derived from a letter B(Baleni), I must admit I surprised myself how it came out, this range might be the one that you've been waiting for(",) lol
