Talitha studied at the University of Stellenbosch where she obtained her 4 year degree in BA Fine Arts: Creative Jewellery Design and Metal Techniques. In her spare time she started making jewellery for family and friends. It was during this time that she discovered her passion and love for creating distinctive, timeless and contemporary jewellery made to the highest quality.

Following graduation, she worked as a goldsmith for 5 years, where she further developed her skills and knowledge in the jewellery industry. This helped her gain invaluable experience and made her realise that she was ready to launch her own career in the jewellery trade.
