Brass Images was established in 1988 in the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, about a4 hourdrive out of CapeTown .Thelong lastingsuccess of the project is due to the fact that the group develops new designs on a regular basis and pays great attention to detail and quality. Brass Images employs 15 people from the local community to help createhigh qualityfashion jewelry. As demand grows, the organization hires and trains more artisans, providing sustainable income in an area in need of employment.
