What I love about the jewelry by Pichulik is their boldness. The South African brand creates affordable statement pieces that are inspired by African and Middle Eastern Ornamentation. Each piece is handcrafted using locally manufactured ropes and interesting found materials. The designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik, who actually is a trained artist and patissier, started her brand 2012 in Cape Town. Her work is fueled by the intimate relationship women have with jewelry. The latest collections are available for purchase here.
If the Pichulik brand was a person she would have a wicked sense of humour, a strong yet inspired presence. Kind, wise eyes that speak of many journeys through exotic lands. She would smell the way jasmine smells in Johannesburg at the end of winter – promising spring. She would taste of pomegranates from Granada and rose syrup from Morrocco.
