So – just wanted to blog a little about exciting news – as of next month, I will be working on my jewellery fulltime – sharing a studio with Nicky Savage – and working like a mad thing on new designs, and on getting stock into more shops! I’ll also be able to do more custom orders – hurray!

So – to celebrate, I have decided to run a little special – on a sterling silver hand cut initial pendant (your choice of letter & gemstone – garnet, blue topaz, aquamarine or rose quartz star) – for R220! 🙂 (and with silver on the rise, this is a good deal!)

Email me at megan@starbrightgirl.com to order 🙂

If you’re not based in South Africa, you can order one via Etsy – here’s the link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74463052/sterling-silver-custom-initial-pendant

In other news – the next I Heart Market is almost here – here’s a look at the amazing new poster (aren’t they always wonderful!) – hope to see lots of Durban folks there! 😉

So – that’s all my news – will write next about the upcoming exhibition at Artisan Gallery (and will hopefully have pics to show off!), as well as possibly having an open day at my new studio premises!

Have a wonderfully nice weekend all! Megs xx

Hey all.. A little later than promised, but herewith some pics of the beautiful Artisan Gallery in Florida Road, Durban..

The stunning glass-fronted space is fantastic for showing off the multitude of South African artworks, including pottery, ceramics, paintings, textiles and of course, jewellery. Sue Greenberg, the owner, always makes sure everything is beautifully displayed, and it is always a pleasure to browse (and buy!) there..

Currently running is the Local is Lekker exhibition – see previous post: https://starbrightgirl.wordpress.com/2010/05/22/local-is-lekker-nice/

Herewith a little pic of my work on display – I personally love the silver & resin zoo biscuit brooches!!

So that’s all from me for now – but please do check out Artisan when you can – see their website for directions and more info! http://www.artisan.co.za

And of course – tell your visiting friends and relatives too – there are awesome and unique SA goodies – a great reminder of their (hopefully) incredible World Cup visit!

Have a fantastic Sunday – and hope the week ahead treats you all well 🙂 Megan xx

For the non-South Africans reading this post, Lekker is an Afrikaans word, that’s been adopted by most South Africans, as a word that encompasses all things “nice”. Can also mean the equivalent of “yummy” or “delicious” when talking about food 😉

Anyhow – as previously mentioned, Artisan Gallery, in Florida Road, Durban, is opening a new exhibition entitled “Local is Lekker”, so I’ve been slaving away to make up some new pieces especially.. I didn’t want to stretch myself too much technically, not enough time for that! – so came up with some fairly simple designs – some based on unique indigenous flowers I’ve seen, and some on some of my favourite local treats – chocolate & biscuits!

These earrings are based on 2 different flowers – on the left, the flower of the Natal Plum – but I’ve attached them loosely, so they spin like little helicopters in your ears! Then on the right, it’s my I heart Cosmos earrings – they’re different lengths, cos no 2 Cosmos flowers are ever identical, and have little hearts in the centre of each – so cute!

Next up is a design based on a type of Orchid found in Natal (the province I live in) – I’ve stylised them slightly, and kept them as simple but eye-catching details to this chained neckpiece – this looks sooo nice on, I’m tempted to keep it! 🙂

Then there’s a little homage piece to my favourite chocolate of all (yes, it’s usurped Turkish Delights and Caramello Bears – I can’t get enough of the new milky middle duo type!) It’s a simple piece – but it really stands out – and just looks good enough to nibble on! 😉

There are a few more items which will be going on show, but this is just a teaser for now – hope you like so far! Check at the bottom for the invite to the exhibition opening – if you’re in Durban, try stop by! 🙂

Have a fantastic weekend all – am off with my hubby & friends to watch Wayne Brady perform tonight, so am sooo looking forward to a fun & funny night! Megan xxx
