With The Fall, Botha has stayed true to her bold aesthetic and modern approach to traditional African jewellery through her signature use of brass and bamboo combined with unusual materials. The designs are made fresh and contemporary by incorporating nuances from a kaleidoscope of cultures. Each piece is rich in history with African, South American and Indian influences as well as elements inspired by nature.

Designs range from chunky statement pieces for the fearless woman to dainty and feminine necklaces and bracelets that have a subtler strength. Each item in the collection can hold its own and can be worn as a standout piece or piled on and stacked to bring the layering trend to accessorizing. Rich gold, black, oxblood and dark blues and purples infuse the designs with warmth.
