Linda van Niekerk : 10 Years On
Linda celebrates a decade of jewellery design and making with a solo exhibition at Brenda May Gallery.
‘My approach to design has evolved since my first exhibition at Brenda May Gallery in 2004, however my desire has always been to create bold sculptural jewellery that sits well on the body.’
The exhibition will review Linda’s work of the past 10 years plus new work that references earlier works.
‘I hope to demonstrate, irrespective of the ideas behind a collection, an elegant timelessness that transcends fad or fashion.’
