About

Secretly scratching in mom's jewellery box when I was little, the idea to be a jeweller popped into my head. Still curious at 22, I took a few night classes & discovered I was a real natural. So I blew my savings on the equipment & spent the next few years teaching myself further while selling to friends and boutiques here & there.

My love for the unconventional, quirky & unlikely is what drives me to daydream fresh designs. Then time sitting at my bench is where the hands-on inventor in me takes over; ideas evolve & rarely come out as originally dreamed.

All jewellery is handmade at my home studio in Cape Town, South Africa. After 8 months on Etsy, I made the decision to quit my day job... So now.. Playing with my tools IS my day job & I am loving every minute of it!
