About Us

Who are we?

At Kankana Handmade, we're more than just a jewellery brand. We're a story of creativity, compassion, and community. Our journey began during the Covid-19 lockdown in SA in 2019, as a way to channel our passion for crafting into something meaningful. From childhood, I've been crafting handmade jewellery and gifts for loved ones, and now, I'm excited to share my creations with all of you.

Locally Sourced & Handmade

We take pride in our commitment to supporting local artisans and being environmentally conscious. Each piece is handmade with care and attention to detail, using authentic gemstones sourced locally from South Africa and Zimbabwe. We believe in quality craftsmanship and ensure that every piece is made to order, meaning it was created especially for you. Additionally, we use eco-friendly and recyclable packaging for all our products, because caring for our planet is just as important to us as creating stunning jewellery.

Giving Back

At Kankana Handmade, we're passionate about giving back to those in need, especially our furry friends. That's why we're proud to support Dogs Deserve Better, a no-kill shelter for abandoned and abused dogs in the Western Cape. With every purchase from our paw print ranges, 20% of the proceeds go directly to this deserving organization, helping to provide care, shelter, and love to animals in need.

Expanding Our Range

We are proudly local and constantly expanding our range to offer you new and exciting pieces. Whether you're looking for a unique statement piece or a thoughtful gift for a loved one, we have something for everyone at Kankana Handmade.

Thank you for joining us on our journey and for supporting Kankana Handmade. Together, we can make a difference, one handmade creation at a time.
