Just arrived… stunning new collection by Syann van Niftrik.
Born in South Africa, Syann originally trained as a ceramic designer. She moved to the Netherlands setting up her first jewellery studio in 1971. A visiting lecturer on the BA Jewellery course at Central St. Martin’s, London, she also mentors students.
‘My early years were passed in Africa with unmistakable rhythms, textures and hues. I breathed it in deeply winding it freely into my northern birth right. My work draws freely from my environment without being representational. This together with a need to make a piece that sits on and moves comfortably with the body is what I seek to do.’
