Sticks and Stones

Beloved South African jewellery designers Philippa Green and Ida Elsje have once again inspired us with their lust-worthy collection to be showcased at the 2013 Winter Jewellery Collections launch in Jozi. The duo’s collaboration with architect, Gregory Katz of Situ has resulted in their range - Sticks and Stones. Situ’s modern take on classic diamond settings (in resin) intensifies the brilliance of the stone. From Philippa Green you can expect a combination of semi-precious stones, rough bronze and sterling silver, while her iconic Perspex bangles and cuffs have undergone a makeover in brass and copper. Ida Elsje’s handcrafted pieces are as daring and elaborate as they are exclusive. We love how this local designer stimulates the senses with her new range of rough cut natural stones and twisted metals, universal in their appeal and individual in their creation.
