Di van der Riet-Steyn

Di lives with her husband and two children on a small holding in the village of Prince Albert. Creating jewellery out of ‘found’ objects has been an obsession of hers since university where she read a Bachelors of Fine Art majoring in Jewellery Design at Stellenbosch. There she won the Maggie Laubser scholarship to further her studies in both England and Germany. After living and working in Europe she came back to South Africa where she worked in Plettenberg Bay. In 1999 she moved to Prince Albert where she has continued to work in both gold and silver. Her current line is made from found ceramic fragments.

“In a ‘dorp’ which is rich in history, one often walks nose down in the veld, searching for that piece… blue and red shards. I wonder who used that piece of crockery 150 years ago? Someone else’s precious plate or cup, treasures in the ground, discarded in the garbage heap.”

Di wraps these gems in pure silver and transforms them into wearable one of a kind “Karoo Blues”.
