Welcome to Lily loves...

After completing her diploma in Jewellery Design and Manufacture, Sarah headed to London for six years where she designed diamond jewellery collections for renowned jewellery companies, her work taking her to all corners of the globe and featuring on many
pages of International magazines.

Since returning to South Africa in 2008 Sarah set up "Lily Loves" a company dedicated to the designing and manufacturing of hand made copper water fountains, utilising her metal smith techniques but now on a bigger and bolder scale. Water Fountains may be commissioned by clients according to specific requirements. Viewing is by appointment in Johannesburg or at the various Trade Shows
country wide throughout the year.

About Lily loves...

Lily Loves designs and manufactures sculptural hand made water fountains based on botanical designs. All water fountains are made from pure copper, hand beaten and rolled into shape to create a unique water fountain. Water flows up through the main stem and down the leaves making a gentle splashing sound. In turn the copper colouring weathers and turns a beautiful characteristic aged green colour. Each water fountain is individually made for the client.

If however you would prefer another design that is not in our
gallery you may commission one to be made and a quote
will be worked out for your requirements.

All water fountains are supplied with a pump which will require minimal maintenance of cleaning periodically. Also required would
be an electrical point for the pump and a pond or watertight
container to place the water fountain.
