Linda van Niekerk

Jeweller
Published: 16.05.2021

Statement

I think of myself as a designer and conceiver of wearable sculpture rather than a jeweller. I strive to create work that is bold, visually striking and deceptively simple. Much of my work is influenced by my African heritage and by the beauty of my home in the pristine south of Tasmania. Irrespective of my influences and inspirations, my desire is always for the wearer to be bold proud and walk tall.
