Meet My Team

Janine Binneman Jewellery Design is a powerhouse of creative women, ready to design and create custom-made and gorgeous handcrafted pieces.

Adele

Adele is our office’s Jill of all trades. You will find her involved in everything from client relations to tech support and all things in between: including sewing our glorious photoshoot outfits! She is also obsessed with cats and crafting, and we love that about her.

Isobel

Isobel is our office’s virtuoso – her years of experience in the jewellery industry means she is all-powerful and all-knowing. When she is not reigning in Janine and Adele’s ADHD squirrels, you will find her nurturing all our studio plants and walking her dogs on the beach!

Celest

Celest is our highly-skilled, super versatile and unflappable goldsmith. She makes Janine’s visions a reality. Her can-do approach means we can go that one step further for our clients. She is our animal whisperer and definitely Fysh cat’s (head of security) person

Naomi

Naomi is our English Rose. She has sailed the seven seas, and brings with her one helluva treasure chest of knowledge, client love and cheer. Lulu is over the moon to have her very own #1 fan. It was love at first sight!

Sparky

Sparky (aka Christmas Slug) is our OG cat! She is the oldest and loudest of them all and has never met a meal she didn’t like. She is the matriarch of our studio and Janine says she is not fat; she is just short for her weight!

Domino

Domino (aka The Unicorn) is our black and white fluff ball. She is the ONLY shy kitty in the studio and is our minister without a portfolio. Occasionally she will pop into the studio, but that is only so she can pick up her paycheck! Sparky is her person and vica versa.

Fysh Cat From Dawg

Fysh Cat from Dawg (aka Head Of Security) is our gansta cat. Celest is his main girl and he takes his job of protecting his people very seriously! He loves his wet food treats, but always says hold the meaty nuggets.

Sir Huffington

Sir Huffington (aka His Royal Highness) is our mighty Main Coon. He is the epitome of “cats have staff” and is always finding fault with his studio slaves! He is (not so) patiently waiting for Janine to design his emerald crown that he so rightly deserves!

Miss Poh

Miss Poh (aka Poh-Pie Lopie) is our blue-eyed girl. She is small but oh-so magnificent! She is the ultimate lap cat and doesn’t let her ‘poepie leg’ slow her down or stop her from living her best life. She is completely ruled by her stomach, which seems to be a bottomless hole; no one knows where she puts it!! Don’t tell anyone, but she is the apple of Janine’s eye!

Ophelia

Ophelia (aka Fifi) is our green-eyed beauty. While she still has some growing to do, she is the softest furred of all – just don’t touch her tummy! She loves to hang in the studio, learning the trade from Celest or doing paperwork with Adele and Isobel. We think she may have traded her tail with a squirrel; it’s sooooo fluffffffeeee!

Otis

Otis (aka Otie Patotie) is our flame point Siamese boy. He is very ham-sum, the most curious of the cats, and is always looking for a new adventure. He LOVES a sand bath and does not share the spotlight easily! He will happily be your friend; just do NOT try and steal his mommy’s attention!

Lulu

Lulu (aka lulu-pops) is our best girl! She is our happiest, friendliest black Lab ever and because she is eternally a puppy, just wants to play, play, play! She loves it when Otis gives her kisses and if she thinks you are worthy, she will share her blankie with you!

Projects We Support

We chose The Underdog Project charity (a registered non-profit organisation) that works with vulnerable children and dogs in Cape Town, South Africa, because their crusade of kindness speaks to our hearts. By training rescue dogs in animal assisted activities, they offer therapeutic workshops to teach empathy to at-risk youths in impoverished communities and bring joy to troubled dogs. We have to be the change we want to see in this world!

Every year we donate an item of jewellery to The Underdog Project’s annual auction for raising much needed funds.

Nothing says quality, quite like a handmade piece. I love this ring, from the moment I first saw it online to when I got to wear it for the first time too.

I've always loved the colour blue, and who knew I would be able to wear a multitude of blue hues from Monday to Sunday. It's basically my wildest dream come true! Customer service is also on fleek. Thanks a mil.

I love my ring, it looks just how I hoped it would! The rose gold compliments the sapphires well, I love how brightly the sapphires shine. This is my second purchase from Janine and everything has been well crafted!
