Jewelry and Textiles Exhibition

From the opening on Wednesday, 15 December 2010 to 15 January 2011, the Kalk Bay Modern will be hosting a luxurious show of artisan textiles and jewellery - over 35 designers, proudly South African, of course.

This stunning assortment of work provides an incredibly tactile and varied display in which there is definitely something for everyone.

From Nic Bladen there is an array of his exquisite silver jewellery cast from fynbos flowers. Work by Paula White from the House of Hector and Erika Akira reveal a different side to this beautiful medium while jewellers like Jane Eppel and Marzipan venture into the playful and offbeat with their unusual and creative pieces.

Wonderfully Mediaeval works by Michael Cope contrast and yet marry beautifully with the enchanting creations of Smith while Love Joy by Stephy is simply a magpie's delight.

And the jewellery display is not the only sumptuous feast for the eyes. Ornate felt  creations like the one featured below by Nicole De Jaager are sure to whet your creative appetite while the delightful and funky works of Shine Shine will delight and amuse.

The comical Woo-men are sure to capture your heart (if they have not already) and make adorable gifts for the young and young at heart. 
There is a striking display of work from Yda Walt and some beautifully delicate prints from Veldt, Skinny Laminx and of course,the superb Ekoka textiles, the designs of which are derived from the work of the San people who receive royalties on the printed meterage.
