In time to celebrate its Sweet Sixteen this year – and give us a seriously big reason to jump for joy come mid-November – Kirsten Goss is launching the ABODE collection. We love, love, love (and always turn to) this jewellery brand and now the new collection will allow us to indulge in some pretty items for our homes. The company tells us, ‘This is a natural extension of our jewellery brand; our signature shapes and meticulously-crafted metalwork will scale up to become considered implements and objects for living.’ So what can we expect? Brass and sterling silver cutlery and serving ware make up the core of the collection … think spoons for espresso, mustard, condiments, sugar and jams as well as pickle forks and salad servers. We want (need) them all! There’ll also be some stationery and two signature SOY candles, along with luxurious liquid hand soap and a lush hand and body cream. We’re putting these at very top of our wish list for Santa! Happy Sweet Sixteen, Kirsten Goss. Prices range from R300 for the brass items to R6000-plus for solid silver. Shop 3, 64 St Andrew Street, Birdhaven. Details: kirstengoss.com
