Eon Hoon Jewellery

Cape Town-based Eon Hoon Jewellery Design creates wearable pieces from unusual materials.

Eon Hoon is the owner of his eponymous jewellery brand. He graduated with a BTech in Jewellery Design and Manufacture and while studying won PlatAfrica’s Most Creative Design Award 2005 in the student category.

With a shifted focus on unusual materials such as reclaimed wood and recycled objects, and the incorporation of these into wearable jewellery, Hoon's work can be described as humorous and slightly satirical. His techniques include resin work, woodworking and experimentation with new technology, together with traditional goldsmith techniques.
