Our Team

Marelé Moolman, driven by her passion for creating unique pieces and wanting to explore new horizons joined the workshop of David Bolding in 2005 as assistant manager and in 2007 freeRange JEWELS™ came into being as a result of Marele's desire to keep her own creative energy vibrating.

‘I get lyrical when it comes to a well-made piece of jewellery in a style that pushes the boundaries, a perfectly balanced design that shouts and whispers at the same time-jewellery that tells you something for which there are no words. I am fascinated by how the creative mind responds to triggers, how it does not deliver when I want it to, but overwhelms me with possibilities when I least expect it!’ - Marelé Moolman

The freeRange JEWELS™ team

 

As the creator and driving force behind the freeRange brand, Marelé oversees all aspects of the business; from meeting with clients to help them realize their vision of a bespoke piece of jewellery; to working alongside the design team to ensure the piece is both creative and original; to managing the workshop where the goldsmiths bring the designs to life. Marelé is the heart and soul of freeRange and demands excellence from every member of her team so that each client feels fulfilled by the freeRange experience.

 

Jodie comes from artistic stock and sees the world through unconventional lenses. Her fiery authenticity and flair for the dramatic are what drive her. Jodie studied jewellery design and manufacture at the Ruth Prowse school of Art and joined freeRange JEWELS™ in 2007 as junior designer, when the brand was in its conceptual stages. She steered the first freeRange environmental awareness campaign “Save the Frog”, the designs of which are still among the top sellers. Jodie’s sense of design, desire for practicality as well as beauty in every piece, along with her engaging personality, make her a superb ambassador for the freeRange brand.

 

Leanne graduated as a fashion designer from the Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design in Stellenbosch, but soon found her preferred medium of communication through video, audio, images and text. Coining the term “Haute Couture Social” she landed the opportunity to develop the voice and character of the freeRange JEWELS brand. Leanne is our in-house branding and marketing strategist who aspires to give every client access to the latest freeRange products & offerings via their favourite social platform.

The Studio

 

The studio in Greenpoint is an airy space that invites light in through double volume picture windows. Clients can view a number of pieces in the showcases and can sit in quiet comfort with design consultants to discuss their needs.

 

The workshop is conveniently placed just a few doors away from the studio. This allows for fluidity in the story of your piece – from design to creation- you can even accompany the design consultant to watch the magic happen.
