Former International model and sportswoman, Gilli Both has lived a life of
which novels are made. Raised on a farm in what is now known as
Zimbabwe and surrounded by big game animals, she later lived in Kenya,
India and South-Africa. Her early training in Fine Arts, her respect for the land
of her childhood and her passionate interest in the customs and beliefs in
ancient and primitive civilizations has inspired her to create a powerful and
provocative collection of gold sculptural jewelry of exceptional refinement.
What began as a hobby in the mid 1970's quickly became a business as more
and more people, including royalty and heads of states, began to commission
examples of her work. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in Cannes,
Paris, London, Palm Springs, Houston and New York.
Gilli is an ardent conservationist and a percentage of her sales supports a
number of organizations dedicated to the preservation of wildlife and natural
resources of Africa.
" I hope you will enjoy owning my unique creations and please be prepared
for compliments and conversation. "
