Local is lekker

I love to support local artists and the quality of products they have to offer.
Like they say; "The grass isn't always greener on the other side",
and it is always such a blessing and adventure to explore local markets and discover the creative genius of so many young artists.

It's a small world, but I met Jaynie briefly while she was working at my friends sister-in-law's clothing boutique (another gem on its own) and then saw her following her own creative journey when she started her own business...."Hallo Jane".
A little intro on what she does:

Hallo Jane is based in the small coastal town of Pringle Bay and is inspired by all things beautiful surrounding us.
We design and make authentic and unique laser cut jewellery and decor. Our ranges consist of laser cut bamboo, wood, leather, Plexiglas/Perspex.
Most of our designs are South African inspired.

I have the privilege to own some of their beautiful silver sterling earrings and two of my favourite necklaces. The King Protea Necklace I won with a photo competition (The Africa Outline Necklace)

Go and have a look for yourselves and indulge in some pretty jewellery.
