The maker

JTaranaki Jewellery was founded in 2015 by Jacob Taranaki after completing his Level 5 Diploma at the Peter Minturn Gold Smithing SchooL. Jacob chose this school due to its traditional teaching methods and strong emphasis on handmaking.

His mission is to provide cutting-edge manufacturing and design in every piece that he creates. Jacob is determined to keep making jewwellery here in Australia with a strong emphasis on upholding century-old techniques that are quickly being replaced by technology and fast fashion.
