You may have had a consultation with Jackie or met her at Penchant in Franschhoek but, there is much more than what meets the eye. Jackie is a Stellenbosch University Jewellery Design and manufacturing graduate. At the Stellenbosch University she completed a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts (BA (VA)) – Creative Jewellery & Metal Design.
Despite her studies, workshops, and other courses she completed, Jackie was invited to be part of several exhibitions. She has ample experience in the jewellery industry.

Where did it all begin?

She became the new owner of Penchant in 2016. Ever since, the Penchant Fine Jewellery team is led by her.

She loves daisies herself but, Penchant has been 'daisy crazy' even before she joined the team. These are some of her daisy inspired creations.
These pieces were all designed and produced by Jackie. This was after she became the owner and lead designer of Penchant Fine Jewellery. These are some of her daisy inspired creations.

She has always been a creative individual. As a child and now adult, she has been passionate about creating and working with her hands. Painting and drawing were her first methods of expressionism. Later Jackie realised that she would love to bring her creations ‘to life’. This idea sparked an interest of jewellery design. Her childhood dream of altering creativity into a career became a reality.

She is always on hand to assist with anything. Sourcing of stones, selection of pieces to the design, production, manufacturing and maintenance of fine jewellery. This is what brings her great joy. As a born creative she channels her energy into crafting exquisite and bespoke fine jewellery pieces for clients.

Jewellery Designing and Internship

Jackie does not keep her years of experience and knowledge to herself. Jewellery designing classes is just one of the ways she teaches others how to design and create their own pieces. She recently began to offer internships to graduates who would like to start their own businesses and continue on with long-term mentorship throughout the process.

Free consultations

Hahn Jewellery

Before becoming the new owner of Penchant, Jackie established Hahn Jewellery. The pieces she created during this time were more contemporary and artistic. Hahn Jewellery was privileged to exhibit its more upmarket range in 2012 at the Kults Exhibition, Berlin, Germany together with two other international Jewellery artists.
