Kristen Malan, an advertising and marketing guru turned jewellery maker scooped first prize at the AuDitions Urban Tribes design competition held 3 days ago at the Turbine Hall in Newtown, South Africa.

The judges were unanimous in selecting Kristen's 18 carat gold and perspex bubble arm piece entitled Molecular Truth and a gold sickle-weave cell phone cage entitled Hands Off as the wining pieces.

While Malan was always drawn to colour, she officially opened her own jewellery design business in June 2008. She decided to enter the competition because the design brief was so amazing and in her opinion it was the most prestigious competition in South Africa.
