I’ve decided to do a new “Tried & Tested” blog series featuring locally made products & small business that I love. If you have any suggestions of awesome small businesses to check out – please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org ♥
I discovered Tiffany Marx and her gorgeous jewellery about 2 years ago at the Lawns Market at The Roundhouse while I was shopping for a gift for a friend’s 40th birthday. I didn’t really know what I was looking for at the time, but when I set eyes on her seed pod earrings I knew they were just too special to put down again and I hoped that my friend would love them as much as I did.
Here’s the story behind these unique seed pod pieces:
And here’s a look at some of the gorgeous pieces in the range:
The even bigger selling point is that the lady behind these pieces is as beautiful, both inside & out, as the carefully considered designs that she creates.
Since that first meeting (and seed pod earring purchase – which my friend loved btw), she’s also designed a stunning engagement ring for close friends of mine. Feast your eyes on this 18ct Rose Gold Solitare beauty with a out-of-this-world Oval Morganite stone:
But yeah, not only does she make gorgeous ready-to-wear pieces, she also does custom designs with anything from engagement rings to gifts-from-you-to-you. Here’s a quick look at a few more custom pieces that she’s done:
Because I’m nowhere near getting engaged (like ever! haha), my current list of lust-worthy, gotta have ’em items are a little more low key, but equally beautiful:
Now usually you can pop into the Watershed Market in the V&A Waterfront to check out her designs in person, but of course due to the lockdown that’s not currently possible and it’s had quite a significant impact on her business & her ability to support her amazing all-female team.
So, with that in mind I want to encourage you to show her & her team some love by purchasing pieces which you can collect after the lockdown or by getting in touch if you have a custom design in mind. Not only will you be supporting a local business that deserves it, but you will also be able to take advantage of some amazing discounts she’s offering at present.
For more details on these discounts (which range from 25 – 50%), check out her “SALE” story highlight as shown below:
Ordering & payment is super easy:
- Make contact by sending a direct message on Instagram, by emailing her at email@example.com or by simply giving her a call on 083 534 2462.
- Payment can be made via Snapscan, Payfast (for card payments) or EFT.
So why not treat yourself OR surprise a friend, family member or someone special with an extra special gift. Also don’t forget – mother’s day is on the horizon people! (there will be lots and lots of brownie points for life, guaranteed) 🙂
