Linda van Niekerk
Jewelry designer Linda van Niekerk is based in Tasmania, Australia.  This beautiful part of the world encourages the contemplation of natural beauty and inspires her creations.
 
A strong sense of place is evident in her work and has influenced the materials she includes in her pieces; she often combines silver with natural Tasmanian elements like driftwood and turned precious timbers.
 
This September Bini Gallery in Melbourne will showcase a collection of Linda’s bold, yet simple pieces crafted from turned Tasmanian timbers and works featuring driftwood found in the untamed Tasmanian wilderness.
 
I would love this work to prompt contemplation of a precious natural resource.  However, irrespective of the inspiration I draw upon for my work, my desire is always for the wearer to be bold, proud and walk tall.” / Linda van Niekerk, Huon Valley, Tasmania
