Lots of activities these months. Too many for this newsletter. But I managed to put the most important ones in this one page newsletter. If you are interested in receiving our newsletters in PDF-format please let me know (email address in top newsletter). As you can see/read: where-ever you live you can order a unique Christmas Gift online. 11 And 12 December I present my jewellery at the best Christmas Market in the Western Cape, South Africa (Gabrielskloof, Botrivier. – I’m one of the 6 selected jewellery designers from across south Africa). Last but not at least: This Friday 4 December between 5 PM and 9PM I have my usual presentation at Art Thirst Gallery (Leon Muller)  in High Street, Hermanus as part of the Hermanus First Friday’s Artwalk.

In ‘Where to buy‘ you can find the shops in the Western Cape that have one or both of our ranges. But nor everybody lives in the Western Cape South Africa. Online shopping is slowly becoming one of the mainstream retail opportunities that provides interested people from where-ever in the world the possibility to acquire one of my pieces. I work mainly with Faithful-to-Nature that has an excellent reputation for over 10 years plus a wide global customer circle.

Note: People visiting the Gabrielskloof Christmas Market in Botrivier 11 and 12 December: See you there 😉 !
