Inspired jewellery & art by Geta Finlayson
Geta Finlayson is the most renowned, well known and beloved jeweler of the Overberg! Her ability to capture ethereal beauty in an object has never seized to amaze me. It comes from inside her and spills into her work through design and loving care.
The first thing I coveted in Hermanus, on arival almost 20 years ago, was to own my own original piece by Geta!
Every time I wear my Geta pieces I feel deeply special and blessed.
Just off Harbour road – In the courtyard.
Geta Finlayson’s workshop is within a stone’s throw from the cliffs in the seaside village of Hermanus. It is this link with the ocean which inspires Geta to incorporate pieces of iridescent abalone shell interspersed with pearls between gold and silver creations.
Geta obtained her B.A. Degree in Art at the University of Stellenbosch and then furthered her studies in Germany. She is married to winemaker Peter Finlayson and has held many exhibitions locally and overseas. Geta travels to the East annually to hand-pick pearls to use in combination with abalone shells for her creations.
