Tshepiso

Designed and made by hand in a small studio, Tshepiso’s gender fluid namesake jewellery brand is inspired by everyday life, art and breaking the rules of a traditional binary approach to fashion as a whole. The Sterling Silver pieces are made with freedom of expression and individuality in mind, making them fit as an extension of the body with special attention to detail. Tshepiso, who is the Founder and metalsmith of Tshepiso obtained her degree in Fine Arts at The University of theWitwatersrand but has always had a keen interest in fashion. In 2019, she went on to graduate from Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery school in Florence, Italy where she explored how to merge her love for fashion and art through jewellery. Combing her innate South African influences with European style gives her jewellery a unique blend that is beautiful, raw, but refined. The working process often consists of building up and stripping down work to reach a delicate balance of weight and shape which makes each piece of jewellery inimitable. Tshepiso does not work by conventional collections but rather plays with shapes of existing pieces and builds onto them to sustain relevance while staying true to work that cannot be replicated or recreated.
