hand-crafted sterling silver jewellery and metal keepsakes

blinkidees is handmade with love



Blinkidees is Afrikaans for “Shiny Ideas” – referring to the brilliant shine of polished silver.

The creative space of this one-women-business is in a small artisan’s workshop in Brackenfell, near Cape Town where each piece is handmade by the owner SuZan Cumpsty. Her work includes sterling silver, brass and copper jewellery and keepsakes, some with hand stamped messages, often secret, sometimes witty.  SuZan is passionate about designing pieces with intricate surface texture that are created by using several different methods such as etching, embossing and casting. Her unique high quality pieces make ideal family treasures that can be passed down from generation to generation.
