Many designers try, but few get it right. There is something beautiful that happens when a designer has the ability to combine and juxtapose a traditional craft with modern technics, when they can redesign an old craft into something new and exciting.
Tarien Engelbrecth from Alchemy Loop Jewellery manages just this. She uses old school cross stitching and origami combined with laser cutting and geometric shapes to create a range of statement jewellery pieces.
And we really love that and of course she is local, residing in Johannesburg, South Africa.
