Pichulik

Katherine-Mary Pichulik is a multi-talented local lass from Cape Town – she trained as a pastry chef, dabbled in the art world, worked on organic farms from Barcelona to Granada… then she started making jewellery after a backpacking trip to India. says Kat,

From a young age I have always been rather crafty assembling random objects together to adorn my chest. Now from a mere hobby it as refined into a 7 somewhat collection-excuding a few wildcards reserved for jewish grannies and other eccentrics alike.

this is her debut collection, shot by blog favourite Alix-Rose Cowie. you can find Pichulik at Mr & Mrs, Take Care and The Fringe Arts all on Kloof street.

Frames

Taylor Holland created these frames from great works at the Louvre that he digitally filled with their own content. he’s currently partnering with antique restorers Sainthill Lijsten to make a physical prototype of this project by taking antique frames and filling them with hand-crafted moulds. absolutely love this idea… definitely a piece i could see hanging in my home.

Brook&Lyn

i have been following Mimi’s personal blog Brook & Lyn for a long while, but somehow only recently discovered the beautiful jewellery she designs … i guess this is what happens when you intermittently follow blogs through google reader and don’t check in on actual websites often enough. i like the idea behind the glass necklaces which were inspired by the story of Mimi’s friend’s great-grandmother who, to deflect negativity, would wear a mirror under her blouse. they’re hosting a sample sale on the agate pieces for the next few days, go have a gander.

Beetlebung Farm

Gabriela Herman took these beautiful photographs at Beetlebung Farm on Martha’s Vineyard where chef Chris Fischer hosts informal rustic dinners in the farm’s greenhouse (his family owns the place, and he’s a 12th generation “Vineyarder”). he cooks farm fresh produce like fingerling potatoes and beets dressed with red wine vinegar, salads topped with homemade goats cheese and freshly caught bluefish stuffed with herbs that’s cooked over the fire… holy moly, can you say heaven? heaven.
