“I fell in love with jewellery design because of its intimacy with the body, jewellery becomes a way to carry our stories with us”  - Ashley Heather

Our mission is to create jewellery with intention and thoughtfulness. To craft pieces that are not only capable of keeping up with you but also designed to accompany you on your many adventures through life, both great and small.


OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

TIME-HONOURED GOLDSMITHING TECHNIQUES COMBINED WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGIES

We believe in honouring the ancient art of jewellery making; some techniques of which have remained unchanged for centuries. In a world of increasing mechanisation we strive to keep these handskills and traditional knowledge alive whilst also embracing cutting edge techniques and processes, never where they are simply more convenient but where they add their own unique value to the piece.

HANDMADE IN CAPE TOWN

Whether you choose a piece from our online store or have something custom created it will be lovingly and expertly crafted in our Cape Town studio. No overseas outsourcing, no opaque labour practices, just a small team working together right here. We are proud to work with a network of skilled artisans around Cape Town for specialist tasks such as stone setting and engraving and in so doing contribute to keeping the vibrant jewellery manufacturing industry alive and well in our beautiful city.

QUALITY MATERIALS

Just because our gold and silver are recycled doesn’t mean we are prepared to compromise on quality. Our recycling process yields pure, high quality metals, just like those freshly extracted from the earth. All our pieces are solid gold or silver, never plated nor treated, so they will hold their colour for generations to come. All our stones are sourced from certified dealers, are always conflict free and specifically chosen to meet your needs.

DESIGNED TO LAST

We feel a great responsibility to ensure that the objects we put out into the world are worthy of the resources that went into creating them. Quality materials, meticulous craftmanship and intentional designs are all part of our quest to ensure that our jewellery is designed for you to wear daily and to treasure for a lifetime. We delight in distilling an idea down to its essential qualities, our minimalist designs are simple and timeless.
