tshepiso is the namesake of the founder and metalsmith.
the focus is on crafting jewellery that is based on shapes derived from daily life, art and memories. the working process often consists of building up and stripping down work to reach a delicate balance of weight and shape. every piece of jewellery that is ordered, is handcrafted in the studio by tshepiso just for you, the handcrafted nature of tshepiso makes every piece similar but unique in its slight differences and imperfections.
tshepiso is slowly handcrafted and designed by an individual, with all pieces being made to order. this does mean that working time is between 2-6 weeks for your jewellery to arrive, the wait however is worth it.
tshepiso studied fine art and completed their degree at the witwatersrand university in johannesburg, but has always had a keen interest in fashion. the venture into the jewellery field was a collision of their love for fashion and art. tshepiso went on to graduate in 2019 from alchimia contemporary jewellery school in florence, italy.
tshepiso is a 2022 design indaba emerging creative and has been featured in local magazine visi. As well as an array of international magazines such as british vogue,tatler magazine, 33 magazine, kreep magazine, untitled magazine and most recently an editorial for naatal.
