At home in Kenya…

Sally has recently moved from Soysambu wildlife conservancy, in the heart of Kenya’s Rift Valley, from which she drew much of her inspiration for the Wildlife Collection. These days she is travelling again and spends much of her time between Kenya, India and London. Inspired as always by her surroundings, her latest collections are derived from the wildlife she observes from her verandah or as she horse rides through the bush.  She spends time time at her home in Nairobi, where Out of Africa was filmed. 

The heat of the day finds her absorbed in her intimate workshop talking with beaders and silversmiths. She is more relaxed in her own style and is comfortable making more classical pieces with an historic feel.  Her favourite bespoke piece is a Tuareg cross in the shape of a compass.  She loves its meaning:  we can never lose each other because we hold the world in our hands .

"It never feels like work” she says. “Jewellery is a part of my life. A part of me”.
