New in June 2019
May is always busy with finalising pieces I will be taking over to my friend Ondine in June for her shop Terre Sauvage in Belves, France. Ondine spent a lot of time and energy last year getting together a global collection named ZIMWABI -SABI. Wabi sabi is a blend of two concepts: wabi is about living in tune with nature and it’s focused on the art of simplicity. Sabi is about beauty and natural cycles of growth and death. When combined, wabi and sabi unite to create a feeling of serenity and harmony. The original design concept came from an Italian fashion designer, the manufacturing expertise in handling recycled or sustainable materials came from Zimbabwean artisans and Ondine has supplied much of the organizing muscle The first image is of the finsihsed collection, the second is the material which underlines the collection. The remaining images are the necklaces I made to wear with the collection.
I could not resist earrings and a little bit of colour crept in - to match a neck piece, of course but really because I love the combination.
