I grew up in a household where some of our most prized possessions were antiques. During the brainstorming process, the thought of designing an old and often forgotten piece of jewellery appealed to me.I prefer designing jewellery for men, and have noticed that lately, watches are regarded as jewellery and fashion accessories, rather than being purely functional. A pocket watch, with its chain, can be the ultimate vintage or retro jewellery piece for a gentleman.To combine it with cement, which has the ultimate masculine characteristics of sturdiness and dependability, seems apt. Time and cement form part of our daily lives, although we seldom spare a thought for the importance thereof. A pocket watch designed using PPC Cement would be an appropriate way to honour both.Related ArticlesMarch 21IN: NewsEMERGING TALENT POPS UP AT THE AVA GALLERY March 13IN: NewsTalent From Emerging Creatives Showcases At Pop-Up Exhibition At Nelson Mandela University Bird Street Gallery, Port ElizabethMarch 06IN: NewsMeet the Judges - Pieter Mathews, 2019February 18IN: NewsMeet the judges – Adelheid von Maltitz, 2019February 15IN: NewsMeet Judge & Curator Stephen HobbsFebruary 15IN: NewsDon’t forget the deadline!
