African Fynbosgems jewellery are handmade from recycled cape fynbos. African Fynbosgems are made from the waste material found in the fynbos floral industry here in the Western Cape. Fynbos is “Afrikaans” for fine bush and forms part of one of the floral kingdoms of the world including the well known Protea family. All the fynbos is grown sustainably .
The waste material including branches leaves and spoilt flower blooms are dyed various colours mixed together and then pressed together under great pressure to form a “block of wood” from this block various shapes are then carved. some pieces are varnished and others are left plain. African Fynbosgems are proudly hand made creating local employment. We hope you enjoy this very unique piece of South African jewellery.
