Tuesday 28th June 16h00, it is a beautiful sunny winter afternoon at Doppio Zero in Rosebank, and I am soaking up the last rays of the day. It is the perfect setting for my meeting with Times Live celebrity journalist Gabi Ndebele. I was very excited to meet her and had brought a selection of my very best jewellery designs. She arrived casually dressed in a black top and leggings and a long charcoal cardigan. She ordered a hot chocolate and in no time we were chatting away. I really enjoyed her easy-going bubbly personality. She asked me about my design process, where my studio is and where I find my inspiration. She was excited about the ‘green’, eco-friendly concept of my jewellery. She loved the designs I showed her and after careful deliberation she made a selection of three of my most gorgeous pieces for the July. The lady’s got good taste! One of them she wanted to buy but I decided to give it to her as a token of my appreciation for helping me to get more exposure. Of course I had to take some pictures of us! My day couldn’t have ended any better. I am dying to see all the photo’s of Gabi in her gorgeous outfits, adorned with my jewellery. It will be a long wait until after the weekend... sigh.
Thanks to Saint-Francis of United Creative Lab for putting Gabi and me in touch.
