CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY DESIGN
based in Cape Town, South Africa or better in the Cape Town Metropolitan area or to be precise in the beautiful fishing village of Kalk Bay, South of Cape Town as well as in the cape winelands or to be precise in Franschhoek.
The Kalk Bay boutique shows a wonderful selection of jewellery and is also home to the in-house smithing workshop as well as the bespoke design studio.
The Franschhoek gallery displays a just as impressive collection but introduces a different experience, combining jewellery design with fine art and other design disciplines.
The jewellery collection is the result of a 15 year design collaboration between Andreas Betzold & Patrizia Litty. “It reflects our passion for gemstones and a love for the unique and unusual. Our jewellery is of the highest of standards both hand wrought and cast. We work with rare and classic gemstones that we source from Southern Africa as well as worldwide.”
“We enjoy combining different metals such as 24ct gold or 18ct rose gold with sterling silver. We extended our “collage theme” to include different materials such as African blackwood, exotic leather, silk and even peacock feathers. The collection comprises unique or limited edition pieces only, often featuring one of a kind gemstones.”
CUSTOM MADE JEWELLERY
ANPA offers a highly specialized, one on one bespoke jewellery service, these jewellery designs are mainly created in gold or platinum with classic gems such as diamonds, sapphires or tanzanites but ANPA also enjoys working with less known precious gems such as demantoids or tsavorites. The choice is made by the client. ANPA sources any gems required, assists, designs, consults and ultimately creates this special, unique piece of jewellery for you. Most of the bespoke pieces that leave the workshop are engagement rings & wedding bands, created according to your wishes or designed for you.
MOKUME GANE JEWELLERY
or the japanese art of making swords adapted to jewellery design. Mokume Gane is a technique that works with layers of differently colored metals that are transformed into organic patterns with a distinct wood grain feel.
The resulting jewellery is unique, handcrafted and of high quality hence a great option for engagement rings & wedding bands or a special statement piece.
Very few jewellers world wide still possess the skills to create this highly specialized jewellery. ANPA offers a small selection in both boutiques but mainly custom makes jewellery in this technique.
