I am proud to say that Penchant Design is a woman-owned business and I am the delighted owner. I have an immense passion for design as my personality is defined by creativity. I graduated from Stellenbosch University with a BA Hons degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacturing. I was fortunate to have won third place in the student category of a prestigious Anglo Plat design competition for a beautiful piece that is now proudly displayed in our shop. Thereafter, I completed a five-month internship at a jewellery company in Germany in 2011. It was in 2016, that I took over Penchant Design from the previous owners and have since developed the jewellery ranges according to my style.
I am proud to say that Penchant Design is a South African brand and we are passionate about leaving a legacy of positivity for future generations. To achieve this, we are committed to sourcing all our gemstones and materials from local suppliers, as well as from sustainable sources (more about our sustainable story is coming in our September Blog) and we are proud to be in partnership with the De Beers Group of companies as the only Authorised Forevermark Jeweller in Franschhoek.
