Travel meets whimsy with Tenielle Franklin’s jewel collection called Tenielle
Inspired by travel, found objects, and the unconventional, Canadian jewellery designer Tenielle Franklin is most definitely one to watch out for in the coming seasons. Originally from South Africa, Franklin’s experience extends beyond jewellery design and into the areas of goldsmithing, wax carving and stone setting. Each collection, especially the current “hardware collection,” demonstrates careful deliberation as oppositional textiles such as how metal and fabric beautifully contrast and complement one another with hints of differing moods and looks. Featured in Fashion magazine, on TheKit.ca and as a Toronto Fashion Incubator ‘One to Watch’ in 2011, Franklin’s eponymous jewellery line is sold at specialty boutiques in North America and Europe, as well as online.
