Meet Sarel


Background

Our Head Goldsmith Sarel du Plessis has worked for the company for over 15 years. Sarel grew up in South Africa and studied Jewellery Design and Manufacturing at the University of Technology in Pretoria. Initially planning to study Fashion Design, a meeting with an artist called Deon van Dorp, who worked in precious metals, helped Sarel to discover what he really wanted to do. In 2001, Sarel moved to the UK to gain experience as a Goldsmith and started working for Swag in Kingston. Sarel even met his wife at Swag in 2006 and they married in 2012. ‘My wife is my biggest source of inspiration and also my most honest critic. It is with her help and support that I always strive for perfection in all of my work.’
