“She dreams of dancing on jewels by night”

Marzipan Jewellery is designed for and made by women with an independent, dynamic, playful and bold spirit.

Started by sisters in law Karyn and Shelley Walters in 2002, it was their dream to combine their talents in fashion and marketing to create a collection of artisanal jewellery that was affordable yet still had an original and unique handmade feel. Two years later Veronica Tom joined the design team as head of production. Her skill for beading and appreciation for color and design makes her the essential third of this design trio.

More than a decade later, Marzipan has evolved into a brand that can be described as fun, eclectic and colorful. There is certainly a flavour of Africa in the bold signature pieces that foreigners visiting South Africa have found irresistible.

Their signature is to incorporate unusual and eclectic elements into their design. Combining texture, pattern and print are essential to the Marzipan style. From crochet flowers made from recycled cotton to charming found pieces of porcelain. Semi-precious stones and beautiful handmade ceramic beads made by local artisans. They continually source exciting and unusual elements to use in their designs.

Their enthusiasm for color and playful design is tangible in each necklace. They have stockists in New York, U.K. Germany, Australia, Italy, Namibia and South Africa.
Marzipan is made with Love and worn with Passion the world over!
