Made of Mettle by Tracey Jane Lötter

by Karisa

I met Tracey, the lovely design powerhouse behind Made of Mettle jewellery at a recent media/blogger event.  I immediately noticed the ring she was wearing (which was an absolute stunner) and demanded she tell me where she got it from… When she told me it was actually one of her own designs I just knew I had to do a feature here on Cape Town My Love.

Her stuff, as you can see, is pretty damn awesome…

I love the sleek, modern look of her pieces as well as the unusual shapes and her use of bright colours.  Tracey has actually just launched a new Accent Collection which comprises of various two-toned accent pieces.  With this range Tracey incorporated colour-blocking, geometric lines & new two-toned colour combinations.  Everything is beautifully handcrafted from sterling silver & other mixed materials, and the collection includes 5 signature ring shapes, each with a different accentuated angle, matching box-shaped earrings and pendants, as well as a line of men’s rings & cufflinks.

Her ladies and gents Accent rings are made from sterling silver and perspex, while the matching box-shaped earrings, pendants, rings and cufflinks are made from sterling silver and resin.  Let’s take a look shall we:

Accent Rings Single and two toned

Box shaped two-tone rings

Two-tone Accent earrings

Two-toned Accent pendant

Two tone Accent rings

Gents two-tone ring and Cufflinks

I want so many of those pieces… And I think they make for beautiful gifts as well.

To get your hands on your own Made of Mettle piece (or maybe even all of them), hop on over to The Bromwell here in Cape Town (250 Albert Rd, Woodstock), purchase online from Hello Pretty over here, OR contact Tracey directly to place an order:

These are the recommended retail prices – they may differ slightly from store to store.

And with that I’m gonna say:  Happy Friday everyone, hope you all have a kick-ass weekend.

Def outside the range of what I can afford but I love these, this two-toned thing is great, that pendant.

I’ve seen the pieces up close. Really good quality. Solid pieces. It will definitely last.
