While living in The Diamond City of Kimberley, jewellery making began as an accidental love which grew into a compelling passion for Brenda.
Prior to her move from Cape Town to the peaceful hamlet of Baardskeerders Bos in 2015, Brenda taught jewellery-making to adults, undertook private and corporate commissions, and produced exclusive pieces for galleries in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town – all while operating from her studio at the Montebello Design Centre in Newlands.
Using traditional jewellery-making techniques, Brenda produces one of a kind jewellery which combines her love of the ‘angelic whiteness’ of Silver and the inspiration of the natural beauty surrounding her. This results in pure simplified forms that are contemporary in style but which translate into accessible, wearable pieces.
Her jewellery incorporates bold designs as well as more delicate and organic elements that emulate things she sees in nature.
