Johannesburg based, Hendrik Smit and Reynier Krause are the collaborative genius behind Toyboy jewellery and accessory collection. The initial design source for the collection came from a discarded crate of old LEGO blocks. 

Toyboy’s hard-edged accessories and jewellery pieces are constructed with inspiration from the 60s,70s and 80s and provide local Pop Art devotees and retro-chic fanatics with artistic, witty, bold and experimental design pieces.
