South Africa

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.

      Comments about SMALL SILVER SPOON DIORAMA NECKLACE:

      I was very tempted to keep this for myself but I bought it for my sister in law for Christmas. I told her it's for her "inner little girl" because she lost her mom a few years ago to breast cancer and she is very busy raising her own daughters now. It is a sweet necklace that is entirely unique compared to anything I've ever seen.

      I put the dangle on a longer chain which works well for me. I did a stained glass panel a few years back that is of a girl swinging which is my favorite. It hangs in my window now. So this necklace goes right along with that theme. I love it.

      This spoon pendant is cute. It is not as impressive as I thought it would be. I just wanted it to be a little more three dimentional.

      Comments about SMALL SILVER SPOON DIORAMA NECKLACE:

      I feel that the chain is too long, but that is a minor and correctable issue. The pendant is simply precious! I love it! It is dainty, whimsical, and unique.

      The pendant naturally flips over so the back of the spoon, and thus the art is what shows. I wish there was some way in making it that it could be weighted or balanced to remain face-forward.

      I do LOVE it, though!

          Comments about SMALL SILVER SPOON DIORAMA NECKLACE:

          I was truly disappointed upon receiving the necklace. The detail when viewing the item on the website is clear, lines are precise and recognizable. You can see a girl on a swing. The actual necklace looks like a spoon with a blob in the center. No one would even know what the design was supposed to be. I am hoping that mine is just a fluke and it can be replaced with one that is as shown. I had hoped to also purchase one for my sister, but I'm glad I ordered mine first. Probably a return with no additional purchase. A shame -

            Loved the packaging in the repurposed T-shirt! My mom loved the necklace. My only suggestion would be that you create a better way to present info on the artist who makes the necklace -- a Xerox copy just doesn't seem to go along with the creativity and innovation of the Uncommon Goods brand.

              I received this necklace from my oldest daughter and it brought me to tears. She bought this necklace because of a picture I have framed in my home. It is a little girl swinging on an old piece of wood with nautical ropes leading up to the sky. The hands of God are holding the ropes and it simply says "Will You Trust Me". Her daddy, my husband has stage four cancer and guess what, we are trusting "Him". Priceless gift.
