Second Time Around
“UPCYCLING” – the new trendy buzz word for recycling – and an age-old tradition in the world of jewellery.
From ancient times, jewellery has been remodelled – with reasons varying from changes in taste and style to the reusing of valuable metals and gems from pieces which have become damaged or worn.
Although many jewels should never be altered for their historic importance, there are many more which are no longer of any use or value.
Think of the charm bracelet given to you years ago, now so worn that all the links are broken and which lurks sadly in the bottom of your jewellery box. Or the pretty little brooch left to you by your beloved aunt which has a broken pin and cannot be repaired.
Working with our top South African goldsmiths we have created a special collection of just such items, using bits and pieces found here and there. Each piece a story to tell.
The old treasures shown here were damaged in their previous lives. Every care has been taken to protect original workmanship.
