Managing director and head jewellery designer of Penchant Design, Jackie is a Stellenbosch University Graduate with a BA Hons degree in Jewellery Design and Manufacturing. She’s also a 3rd place winner of the Anglo Plat Competition, Student category (a lovely piece now proudly displayed in our shop front) and has recently completed an advanced CAD course.In March 2016, when the founders of Penchant Design called it a day due to health reasons, Jackie, Penchant’s production manager at the time, decided to give up sleep and take over the business.Jackie is another huge daisy fan, so that’s one thing that definitely won’t be changing under her new leadership – Penchant Design will always be ‘the shop with the daisies’.
Jackie’s German ancestry, together with a five-month internship at a jewellery company in Germany in 2011, makes her almost tri-lingual – English, Afrikaans and enough German to understand whatever the German is for “I’ll take this one!”.
Jackie loves, loves, loves jewellery as much as she loves, loves, loves daisies.Jackie Hahn and Penchant Design. A perfect match!
