There is something I find rather vain  yet charming about a woman who incorporate jewellery in her everyday ensemble. If there above shapeshifters collection by Black Betty is anything to go by, then one does not need an ensemble to exude charm, more especially if the refinery is dear to you.
Inspired by the notion of African Geometry, found in everything from the the cities’ overarching skyscrapers, Cape-fold mountains and interesting graphic patterns of the continent’s design language, the Shapeshifter Range is an expression of this fertile land and its evolving shapes. These silhouettes have been interpreted into angular-designed earrings, necklaces, rings and pendants using diamonds and black and gold rhodium plated silver. As the name suggests, although these facets of the city, it’s natural surrounds and textured products seemed fixed to the naked eye, they are continuously growing and changing and as the ages and decades pass so too does their energy and the way they are perceived, reminding us to do the same. 
I love the use of one of the elements of inspiration (architectural city landscapes) in the lookbook.  photography by Lar Rattray | jewellery (Also, shop the range) by Black Betty .
