Item of the day: Violin Locket
We always love discovering up-and-coming design talent. Even more so when designers are doing ground-breaking work in their industry. Eon Hoon is one such fellow. Coming from a musical family, but “not able to play a note”, Eon decided to express his obsession with violins by transforming it into a precious jewellery range. The locket itself is part of his body of work created in his final year of studies, the entire collection based on his love for music. His passion for all things miniature also came in handy as the mini violin and other creations took shape.
The price is subject to the fluctuating silver and gold price, but today the silver locket retails at about R2 900. The pieces are available directly from his website or Facebook fan page. You can also take a peek at his blog to follow all the latest happenings.
Ready to wear pieces can also be found in Cape Town at The Fringe Arts on Kloof street, at Haas on Rose Street, and at Mememe on Long Street.
