started as an impulse, creating silver pillboxes for myself using
the lost wax process, gave me so much more than the
pleasure of indulging my
hobby – but an opportunity to create work for wonderful artists
and artisans who have helped me develop my hobby into a community
I work closely with the carvers who create the image in wax. They are enthusiastic
about the business as they enjoy bringing Africa to life through the animals,
fruits and flowers. Vali-Cohen Collectibles are therefore crafted with enthusiasm
and excitement . They are silver with a soul...
The carvers' work is typical of the region - and I encourage them to bring in their
own creativity and ideas. My main carver is Driefontein trained and his
detail is beautiful. He has designed and created a wonderful Serima series
depicting rural life - and he receives commission on all pieces sold.
