Keepsake thoughts

Keepsake jewellery offers a creative outlet for me, which is in itself a healing experience, and through it, it serves and enables my clients to hold a small part or remembrance of a loved one or pet, not only during the time of mourning, but many, many years later as well. Read More

A South African Story…

Wear your heritage I am so proud to be South African. Despite the struggles we face as a country, I believe that all our troubles can be overcome by a little understanding, kindness and love. If we can learn to love ourselves, with all our flaws and mistakes, we can learn to love each other and enjoy our human experience in our short time here on earth. I thought about how I can create a feeling of nostalgia, a feeling of pride, and a feeling of unity for South Africa in my clients through my art, and I remembered that my mother had a bag full of old South African coins stored somewhere in a dark cupboard. Chatting with her while counting the coins, inspiration struck, and the first series in the collection was born. Read More

Introductions done and dusted

Hi! Welcome to my very first blog entry for Megan Goldner Designs! I am Megan Göldner, the creative designer, the CVO (Chief Visionary Officer), the manufacturer and my own tea lady 😀 My work is inspired by shapes, sizes, textures, colors, sounds and feelings that is evoked when I look at an object.  My desire is to create something you will cherish, something that will assist you on your life journey,  a heirloom that will be treasured and handed down for many generations. With an internet based shop (no brick and mortar for me!), it can get quite tricky sometimes to build relationships with my clients, seeing that I don’t get to meet them in person very often.   Facebook is a wonderful tool to learn customer buying trends, and what they like, and what they would rather give a miss, but a lot of the time, my clients will engage in conversation from the page, and I have made so many real life friends in that manner, it almost unbelievable. Thank you for sharing in my journey. ~Megan   Read More
