Lloyd Matthew Moodley

Lloyd Matthew Moodley is a Pietermaritzburg-based jewellery designer, blacksmith and part of the 2015 Emerging Creatives programme.

Lloyd Matthew Moodley completed his Bachelors in Jewellery Design and Manufacture at the Durban University of Technology in 2015, and was a finalist in the 2012 AngloGold Ashanti gold design competition. His fascination with making things by hand led to him making knives and getting involved in leather work. That developed into making tools for blacksmithing and creating wrought iron jewellery.

Moodley creates pieces that are usable and “ready for work” and will be showcasing his knives and tools, as well as jewellery and accessories, at Design Indaba Expo 2015.
