Nicky Savage

Nicola started her tertiary studies with a fine art diploma at Technikon Natal, Durban (now DUT). While an important experience, she established that she did not want to be a fine artist. It was during an extended working holiday in the UK that she came to the clear realisation that it was jewellery that she needed to create. So it was back to Durban to study Jeweller Design and Manufacture at Technikon Natal. After a short stint in a commercial jewellery shop Nicola realised that her love was for design and this led to going it alone and starting Savage Jewellery. She has also lectured jewellery students at DUT and exhibited at craft and contemporary jewellery exhibitions across South Africa. Her designs have both a national and international reach. She is based in Glenwood in a great communal studio space.
