Little Acorns – Some Monday Morning Motivation

Little Acorns – Some Monday Morning Motivation

  • September 4, 2017

"Be like a squirrel girl, be like a squirrel"   I got some spontaneous inspiration last week while sitting at my jewellery bench swiping through my music on my phone. I recently uploaded a lot of new music on my phone, some older albums that I have never listened to. A song came on "Little Acorns" from the White Stripes…

Kinkel Jewellery – The Floral Range

  • March 14, 2017

This blog post is slightly late as our Floral Range launched a while ago. It launched November 2016, just in time for our South African summer.  This range suits Kinkel Jewellerys style perfectly as my jewellery has always been inspired by floral designs and patterns found in nature. The range is made out of Sterling Silver with semi-precious stones in shades of green and…

Cape Sea Urchin Range

Cape Sea Urchin Range

  • September 4, 2016

I designed The Cape Sea Urchin Range in awe of our amazing local shores.  The range is made of resin-soaked sea urchins and sterling silver, most definitely Kinkel’s favourite collection of jewellery.  The range is designed around our very own Cape Sea urchin which I collect when I go scuba diving in Simon’s Town.  I have always loved sea urchins for their great patterns…

New Shiny Blog

New Shiny Blog

  • July 29, 2016

    So it has been a while... My last attempt at blogging did not go so well.  After a grand total of 12 posts it just kind of faded. I guess I just didn't really know what I wanted to say or blog about. But now, a few years later, I have gained so much new knowledge and experience.…

Resins and Plastics

  • October 15, 2012

Working in different materials can be so refreshing just to get your creative juices flowing again.  As an exchange student in Germany I got to attend many classes that wasn't just the normal goldsmith classes I was used to.  From ceramics to stone cutting to electroforming. The one class I attended was called New Materials, which basically just included experimenting…

I am once again living in Germany! I loved it here so much as an exchange student I decided to come live here for a year, but this time not as a jeweller, but as an Au-pair. Now I find myself reminiscing on projects and jewels i made two years ago when I was studying here and missing my jewellery bench…

Stacking Rings

Stacking Rings

  • August 15, 2012

Stacking rings are most definitely the new rage. I think the appeal of stacking rings are that you can mix and match your own little collection of rings. Everybody can feel part of the designing process as they get to pick what collection suits them best. So I thought lets give it a try. I had so much fun making…

Electroforming Part 2

Electroforming part 2

  • May 8, 2012

I'v finally finished some more electroforming pieces after some very annoying technical difficulties with my machine. My diy machine has a bit of a mind of its own sometimes.  Some of the pieces came out great, but still not sure about some of them. I am still trying to figure out the technique completely. But I am definitely having fun…
