About

Firepetals Jewellery Design

Firepetals is a Cape Town-based jewellery design studio and jewellery school. We specialise in unique, contemporary and handmade jewellery. Firepetals was founded in 2005.

The name ‘Firepetals’ reflects both the “hard” and the “soft” elements of jewellery-making. Fire represents the hard technical side, while petals represent the more delicate and creative side. The logo is a pin cushion flower, indigenous to South Africa.

Adeline Joubert Heyns studied Fine Arts and Jewellery Design & Manufacture and has been in the jewellery trade for the past 20 years. She is passionate about jewellery as art and aim to make people more aware of the delights of handmade jewellery through her work. She has also been teaching jewellery-making classes and workshops to students and jewellery enthusiasts since 2007.

Unique, contemporary handmade jewellery

“Meeting people with unusual jewellery reveals a lot about them as individuals. To me, jewellery is not just about adornment, but rather an expression of a person’s individuality. – Adeline

Adeline’s work embodies a quirkiness and a sense of humour.

“I love collecting stories and moments that I can translate directly into jewellery themes” – Adeline
