and  is a

Jewellery designer, Goldsmith and Silversmith

Di van der Riet-Steyn lives in the village of Prince Albert. Creating jewellery out of ‘found’ objects has been an obsession since university. After studying at Stellenbosch, then London and Germany, I worked in Plettenberg Bay, exhibiting widely and doing a lot of commission work. 19 years ago we came here, where I have continued to work in both gold and silver.

In a “dorp” which is rich in history, one often walks nose down in the veld, searching for that piece… bits of karoo blue and red shards. I wonder who used that piece of crockery 150 years ago? Someone else’s precious plate or cup, treasures in the ground, discarded in the garbage heap. These little gems are wrapped in pure silver and transformed into wearable Karoo Blues.

Your sentimental shard or old jewellery can be transformed into something special.

Please contact me to buy any jewellery viewed or to order something similar. 2-day workshops for 2 people age 14 and up available.
