How It All Started
Hello there, I'm the jeweller [Timo van Wyk here]. I created this business because I developed a passion for making jewellery. My heart wasn't in craftsmanship in my childhood years until I discovered jewellery making. God just has a way to bring you to certain things when least expected.
When it became hard during lock down I asked [as every child in some point in life does] asked my parents "Did I make the right choice to become a goldsmith? Am I on the right path?" and that's when my dad came and told me something amazing...
When I become 1 year old [12months!] he received the scripture Exodus 31:3-5 which says "I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom and skill, in understanding and intelligence , in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship, to make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, and in the cutting of stones for settings, and in the carving of wood, to work in all kinds of craftsmanship."
After that I was... speechless, and till today I'm still holding on to that scripture as a reminder that I'm on the right track and have a purpose in this direction. Do you know what's the best feeling for me in this industry? It's seeing a finished product that I've made being worn, but the best part is when it comes on to making wedding and engagement rings.
The journey of Timo van Wyk Jewellery started back in 2018 but only launched in 2021. We're proud to say that everyday we learn something new, growing our knowledge, and strive to grow to become a well known brand/business. There is still a long way ahead of us, but the journey is what makes us. Your jewellery is part of this whole process to reach our goals, but it's your jewellery what we're looking forward to making because our goal is to make you happy with our end product.
