The Matoba Collection, is inspired by the grand beauty of the Matoba hills and the spiritual pull that those ancient balancing boulders have on all of us Zimbabweans.
It took a while before we could find a lapidarist who didn't die laughing at us for wanting to cut "gemstones" from granite. We finally found one! His name is GodKnow! You really can't go wrong with a collection that starts it's story out with GodKnows as your lapidarist!
I love the way the dark granite looks against the sterling silver. Since you have to be quite an eclectic individual to want to wear silver and granite I feel that I don't have to hold back when I design for this collection.
The Matoba Collection is the story of my love for those hills and the people of Zimbabwe. May you always stand as strong as those ancient balancing boulders.
