Championing contemporary jewellery in South Africa
Since 2006, Tinsel has provided a platform for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. We focus mainly on one-of-a-kind work that is handmade by the jeweller, and through our many solo and group exhibitions we aim to grow the audience for contemporary jewellery in this country. Our offering is unique in South Africa, and we are committed to promoting this kind of work.
Catch Tinsel at HMC
We are proud to announce that Tinsel has been chosen as the Featured Designer of the jewellery pavilion at this year's Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair on the rooftop at Hyde Park Corner (12-14 October 2018). This year's theme is "a return to making" which we are very happy to get behind, since we have always been champions of handmade, one-of-a-kind local jewellery.
We will be working with visionary creative and all-round cool girl Sylvia McKeown and Sunday Times Fashion Weekly to create a truly original stand to showcase our jewellery, and you'll be able to see us at work handcrafting some special pieces at the show. We will also be hosting workshops where you can make your own piece of paper jewellery, so be sure to pay us a visit.
