“He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” – Francis of Assisi
All Long Jean Silver jewellery is designed and made with our hands, our head and our heart.
We believe that jewellery should be made to last, which is why we use the best raw material suppliers and believe in hand-making or hand-working pieces allowing us to be unique and pour our skills and special care into every part of the production process. We work only in silver, brass, yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, and use only genuine gemstones. We never gold-plate or use base metals in any of our pieces.
We believe jewellery should be beautiful, fresh and relevant so we brainstorm designs, lend creativity from nature, do our research and create slow fashion jewellery that is both functional and charming.
Jeanie Elliott, owner and creator
Our workshop is based in Cape Town, South Africa. We’re passionate about what we do and how we work, so we pour our energy and skill into every piece we produce. We’re transparent with our labour practices and believe in fair trade, upskilling and creating local training and employment opportunities in the future.
We have a catalogue of our work available on request and also offer custom commission-based design and manufacturing services.
