Electroforming.. my new favourite technique!
In my few months as exchange student at Pforzheim design school in Germany, I discovered the technique. And when I got back I was lucky enough to have a dad that could build me my own electroforming machine. Basically electroforming is covering anything with metal by chemical reaction. Here are some pics of my electroforming done in Germany and in my studio. But the experimenting still continues…

Welcome to my new Jewellery blog, Kinkel!!
I just graduated from a 4 year jewellery design and metal techniques course at the University of Stellenbosch. This first post just includes some pictures of what I got up to in my fourth and final year of my course.
The theme for my final year project was: The adorning relationship between the body and its aesthetic extensions. I looked at the relationship between the body and its jewellery and how we decorate and modify our bodies to hide the imperfections and shortcomings of our physical bodies.
Hope you enjoy my blog and its jewels!!
