With a degree in fine art from the University of Newcastle in the UK, Gillian Fuller’s journey in design started with hand-painting and weaving cotton and silk to create ‘soft jewellery’. After experimenting with felt and painted fabric, Gillian decided to translate these designs into beaded jewellery. Not only did it result in a more durable product, but also allowed Gillian’s designs to come to life by making use of local beading skills. Gillian has now created over 200 different bracelet designs using quality Czech seed beads, some of which are currently available at NEO Boutique at the One & Only at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town and at Luminance in Hyde Park, Joburg. Gillian’s large bracelets retail at R600 each, while the smaller bracelets retail at R500 each. To order or for more information, contact Gillian on firstname.lastname@example.org.
