Anna Raimondo, head of Smith-Jewellery, talked about the jewellery she makes. Raimondo says she draws inspiration from her travels and the different cultures and environments that she’s encountered. She graduated with Honours in Jewellery Design and Gemmology from Stellenbosch University.

Smith-Jewellery was launched in 2010 and the jewellery is crafted 100% by hand.

The challenge to fuse organic materials and sensations with intricate designs and techniques is what really fascinates me.
