A Letter From Ortwin

A letter from Ortwin…

It is with a lot of sadness that I am announcing to you all that my wife and I have made the very difficult decision to pass on my workshop and showroom, so that I can move back to Germany. My children have all now left to Germany for their own adventures and our parents are over 80 years now.

The last twenty years living and working in Canterbury have been a very happy time. I have met so many interesting customers and worked on a wonderful array of pieces. I am particularly grateful to you for sharing your ideas, placing your trust in our work and letting us play a small part in your story.

I am pleased to say that I have found two skilled, creative and experienced jewellers to continue the business in the same location. André Viljoen & Rose Citton are a husband and wife team who will take ownership of Ortwin Thyssen Design Ltd on 22 July 2019.

Thank you for your understanding and if I can help in any way before I leave, please don’t hesitate to contact me.”
