Studio Visit: Famke Jewellery


example image

We've spotted Famke's jewellery at a few local markets, namely the Neighbourgoods Market in Cape Town and the first 2015 Kamers Market a few months back.

We love her trendy creations and organised to meet up with her for a chat to find out more about her processes and business!

Famke likes to create striking, simple and modern jewellery with a very defined personality. When she works on a piece, she often thinks of it in the context of a jewelery range, so that individual pieces work together. She likes working with neutral tones and when she includes stones in her pieces, she carefully chooses ones that are most interesting to her.

When Famke studied jewellery design a few years back two of her friends joined her in a plan to one day be able to rent a studio space together. It was soon afterwards that Famke exhibited at the Indaba, and suddenly inundated with orders, she started her self-titled business.

Regarding advice for small business owners, Famke mentioned that it's really important to have a good work-life balance, yet to avoid procrastination as much as possible.

We hope you enjoy a few photos that we took at Famke's studio where she talked us through a few of the various steps she goes through when creating items for her brand.
