Hallo, I’m Janine Steyn. I’m a married mother of a sweet little girl. I love to experience new things …..be it travel, food or wine.

  1. When & why did you start Glove Jewellery

I started Glove in 2005 when I completed my degree with a fashion label frock.   My degree was about how jewellery and clothing can complement each other.

  1. Tell me a little more about your concept, brand and store and your favourite

There are many concepts that form my brand. I have a ready to wear range which is for everyday wearable designs that tell a story about my heritage, loves or style and then we have a range that is inspired by the client which I custom design and make.

  1. Where did you study and what is your background?

I started studying jewellery design and manufacturing in 1999 at Erica campus in Port Elizabeth. I furthered my studies at the CPUT in Cape Town where I completed my degree in jewellery design and manufacturing. I am very grateful that I found my passion in life.
