I studied Jewellery Design at the Cape Town University of Technology and one of my favourite subjects was Gemology. Precious coral has always been one of my favourite gemstones.
I just love the organic, yet structured shapes and it reminds me of diving in some of my favourite beautiful places like Hawaii and Zanzibar. I really wanted to capture that jewel-like colour with the hand drawn corals of my Sea Turtle print.
