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.

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.

autoctona

catching up on my reader this morning i spotted autoctona over at anja’s wonderful fashion fridays post. allessandra is the talented italian born, portland based designer behind the label. you can read more about the meaning of the symbols used on some of the pieces here.

autoctona means native, an italian word referring to origin, identity and a sense of belonging in the most primitive form. we create forward thinking objects whilst preserving and fostering the use of premium craftsmanship and materials. these are contemporary pieces that challenge a conventional definition of jewelry, clothing and accessory. the primary inspirations are amulets, ritual objects and love tokens with their associated symbolism. each piece has been designed, prototyped and singularly hand cast. we source and create everything locally.
