The question “What would you take with you if your house was on fire?” has always been an easy one for me to answer.
I bought my first teleidoscope while travelling, and have considered it my favourite possession ever since. The question “What would you take with you if your house were on fire?” has always been an easy one for me to answer.
In September 2014, my dad and I embarked on a two year journey of trial and error, when we decided to design and make teleidoscopes. With my dad’s technical and design expertise and my determined pottering with lenses and mirrors, we finally perfected the internal optics and overall look, to create a beautiful jewelry item, which is more than meets the eye.

She makes teleidoscopes by moonlight and shapes young minds by day. Fascinated by the beauty of nature and the complexity of science, combining the two to create these beautiful teleidoscope pendants is something Sharn loves sharing.
Dave began his technical apprenticeship at 18, and has worked on various projects, from a home made pac man game in 1978, to laboratory equipment and now teleidoscopes. Living in Cape Town, he is able to live outdoors between meetings in Joburg.
