Frikkie comes from an engineering background, but has always had an acute interest in detailed manufacturing in a wide variety of materials. Creativity can, however, not be inhibited, and after the necessary training, got his studio set up, and has ever since 1987 been making jewellery. His technical background and quest for knowledge gave him the edge to learn quickly, and is now qualified to work in almost any material with confidence. What started out as a mere interest, has since 2006 become a full time occupation, with a fully fledged company. He still enjoys it as much as nearly 30 years ago!
He takes pride in his integrity and honesty and effort to give customers exactly what they desire, and sees that success as part of his reward.
