Feature on Creative: Savage Jewellery

Our new range of jewellery, designed & created by Nicky Savage, arrived in store last week and just in time for Valentine's day! Sterling Silver hearts, stars and geometric shape necklaces and earrings are all in store now. Read on to find out more about Savage Jewellery...

How did Savage Jewellery begin? When / where / how did it all start? 
It started about 13 years ago in Durban. After completing my 4th year in Jewellery Design I knew I did not want to work in the commercial world of jewellery. Luckily while studying I was making and selling so it was an easy progression as I had already got a clientele base.

Why do you do what you do? 
I love making jewellery and the designing and coming up with new ideas. I knew I wanted to work in a creative field. I studied Fine Art first because I wasn’t sure which field I wanted to be in. It was while at Tech the first time that I got exposed to Jewellery and I knew that it was what I wanted to do. I love the creation of these little bits of adornment that you will have for the rest of your life.

When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?! 
I wanted to be a teacher, nurse, fashion designer – I really had no idea what I really wanted to be.

What inspires you when designing new products?
It can be anything from my surroundings. It could be an interesting detail on a building or an interesting piece of furniture. The shape of the pebbles I have collected from the beach.

What are your hopes and dreams for your products?
I hope that when someone buys a piece that they will have it forever. Even though they might not wear it for a couple of years; they will pull it out and wear it again.
