Zanry Jewellery Design and Manufacturing

My high school books are covered in scribbles. Whether it was perfecting my signature, drawings as to how I wanted my matric dance dress to look or just doodles to avoid paying attention in Maths class – my books never resembled the subject in which I was sitting. My good friend Marizanne was the same, except her drawings were a) really good and b) jewellery designs.

When I stumbled upon her designs, I was blown away. She makes unique pieces to order so getting a Zanry piece is an investment and a worthwhile one! She tries to collaborate antique styles with modern aspects, and get’s it quite right in my opinion.

What do you use as your inspiration?

If I am designing a wedding ring, I love to use the couples’ relationship to get my inspiration e.g. who they are and what they like. Other than that, I am trained to use just about anything as inspiration on demand. Generally, in the fine jewellery category, my clients tend to set the boundaries that I need to work within to create a unique piece.

Do you have days when you are completely uninspired?

Of course! Then I just set it aside and go on with another job until I find some inspiration either later that day or the next. It never lasts long so it won’t create a problem with my work.

What are the different materials you use?

The metals that I work with is Silver, Gold(yellow, white and rose), Platinum and Palladium. These are the most common ones. I use pretty much any stones such as diamonds, precious stones such as sapphire, ruby, emerald, semi-precious stones such as quarts, agates, chalcedony etc.. as well as the cheaper options such as cubic zirconia, synthetic gems and even resin.
