Meet a local – Geta Finlayson

Bloemfontein born and bred Geta arrived in Hermanus thirty six years ago with her young husband Peter. Together they started their careers and made a future for their new family.

Eldest son Andrew was only two when the family settled here. Another two years later Peter-Allan made his appearance and the family was complete. Almost. Numerous four-legged friends have made their way into the hearts of the family and there is always a dog milling around the Finlayson neighbourhood.

Between raising her two sons and supporting her winemaker husband, Geta put her Stellenbosch degree in visual arts to use by making bespoke jewellery. The local environment provided the perfect inspiration to support Geta in establishing her reputation as an accomplished jewellery designer. Geta’s necklaces are distinguishable and worn with pride as the pieces are unique and individualistic.

It did not take Geta long to become involved in the community. She is part of Hermanus’s first book club – The Book Sisters, she walks and swims with likeminded friends and also paints.

What is the best about living here? Geta does not hesitate. She has just returned from an hour long walk on the beach. “The freedom offered by life in Hermanus is unsurpassed,” she says. “To live in a strip between the mountains and the sea is just the best life­style anyone can enjoy.”

To top it all Geta is able to share her life in Hermanus with both sons and their families. It is priceless if you can take your grandchildren for babycinos before school.

How would she add value to life in Hermanus? With a strong love for nature and animals Geta would like to explore how the people of Hermanus can co-exist with the baboons. She would also like to see the heritage of Hermanus protected through the preservation of its architecture.

Geta has added to the richness of what Hermanus offers – through her jewellery, her love for nature and her engaging personality. A true ambassador for Hermanus. - FRIEDA LLOYD
