About

Birgit Duval qualified as a Goldsmith in 2001 in Germany. She then finished the Master school for Gold-and Silversmithing in Munich in 2004. Afterwards she went to Namibia where she worked as the workshop manager for a very popular jeweller in Windhoek. Being a Master Goldsmith entitles her to teach apprentices as well as designing and manufacturing unique and high end jewellery.

After 8 years Birgit moved to Cape Town, South Africa and started her own business in 2014.

Birgit is combining unconventional ancient techniques such as Japanese patina with a modern version of Keum boo. She also does custom made fine jewellery . Only after a very high quality control inspection is carried out will each unique piece be allowed out of the workshop.
