Olive Green Cat recently opened their new showroom and design studio in Church Street, Cape Town – a beautiful space, situated within Cape Town’s creative hub.
Pop in to 76 Church Street (between Long and Loop Street) to view a large selection of unique, contemporary South African jewellery hand-crafted by Ida Elsje, Philippa Green and Situ (the innovative collaboration between Ida, Philippa and Architect Gregory Katz in which diamonds are suspended in resin). Together, these three brands make up Olive Green Cat.
The showroom boasts a large collection of each designer’s signature pieces as well as a selection of once-off rings incorporating found objects such as antiques and other collectables. Clients are also welcome to bring in their own precious stones, diamonds or other jewellery pieces to be remodelled at the studio.
Cape Town jewellery designer Philippa Green created both these pieces using found objects. The first piece is crafted from bronze and is adorned with a stamp which Philippa found in India. The second piece is made from resin and is complemented by an old earring Philippa found.
