The Reflectıon of rıch Afrıcan tradıtıons on jewels

Pichulik is an ethical jewellery, accessories atelier based in Cape Town, South Africa. Rooted in Africa, and inspired by ancient traditions and cultures.

Pitchulik is said to be for bold and courageous women, which is understandably so as it’s comprised of a range of wild handcrafted neckpieces inspired by African/ Middle Eastern Ornamentation. The designer, Katherine-Mary Pichulik, is a rope sculptor who uses locally manufactured ropes and interesting found materials to create jewelry for brave women.

Pichulik’s Spring/Summer 2021 Nascent Collection celebrates the regenerative forces of the cycles of rebirth. Like the sesen, the lotus flower depicted in ancient Egyptian artworks, we too can emerge at daybreak wading through the mud and water to greet the sun. Silhouettes are sculptural, monolithic and timeless. The palette and materials are elemental and primordial. Each piece is talismanic, intentioned to protect the wearer and ward off negative forces during these transitional times. In Nascent, ancient wisdom greets the temporal with the sage of the eternal.
