The Craftsmanship

How the Jewellery is made

Both of us have studied in South Africa and in Europe. We have learned old and new techniques of jewellery making.

Our trade exists for centuries. Already in 5 000 BC there were goldsmiths in Europe making jewellery for church and royalty. Even older jewellery and artefacts made from precious metals including precious stones were found in the Andes from the Aztec civilization.

Also Egypt, West Africa and most parts of Asia especially India and China are known for art made from precious materials such as gold and gem stones which were even older than the European pieces.

Many of these pieces of the old days hold unimaginable beauty and were made with such intricate detail considering the tools they had at that time. The techniques used were of true craftsmanship.
