Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss

Moniek Van Zyl and Marlette Strauss, two jewelry design graduates from Stellenbosch University in their homeland of South Africa, partnered together in 2010. Their idea was surprisingly simple: create jewelry that people want to wear but didn't already exist, that is made with the quality people demand, the innovative design they crave, and the green living mantras the world needs.

Their jewelry is individually hand-crafted in their South African shop, made from repurposed materials - typically silverware - that they find on journeys around the world. The capricious designs you see in the jewelry are born of the magic they see around us, that they want to emulate in their daily existence and hope you will join them in a quest to accessorize the world with fun. collection
