â??I get lyrical when it comes to a well madepiece of jewellery in a perfectly balanced design that shouts and whispers at the same time…jewellery that tells you something for which there are no words…. â??
freeRange jewels was established in 2007 at the foot of Table Mountain by designer MarelÃ© Moolman…
Having had spare capacity in her studio, MarelÃ© created pieces with a strong organic/playful theme. â??Before long, my safe was bursting at its seams with gorgeous creations. I knew its owners were out there, I just had to find them!â??
In 2009 freeRange jewels opened its doors in Green Pointâ??s trendy Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village. The store boasts an exclusive collection of bespoke gemstone and diamond pieces.
The brand practises an uninhibited design philosophy, clearly noticeable in the unexpected combinations of various precious elements.
MarelÃ©â??s creative process is fuelled by her desire to express herself beyond boundaries; this is coupled by a fascination with gemstones and an untameable love for nature.
Her fine jewellery background supports the designs, which are all manufactured in-house, only a stone’s throw from the concept store.
The store is a creative hub where customized pieces are conceptualized. â??My commission work can be compared to having a designer dress made up by a couturier. The entire experience is interactive, ensuring the end result reflects what the client wanted. I personally oversee the manufacturing, painstakingly paying attention to the smallest detail! I will call on my client for a fitting during the manufacturing process to make sure that any changes can be made timeously to avoid disappointment.â??
