Yellow is a jewellery design studio based in Cape Town, founded in 2009 by Jessica Lea. All the creations are designed with heart and made carefully by hand using sterling silver and brass. Jessica is committed to manufacturing locally from sustainable, ethical sources, with each piece handmade in her Woodstock studio.
All the creations at Yellow hold a similar minimal aesthetic. Yellow prides itself on its unique approach to jewellery making. Combining distinctive motifs and concepts with classic craftsmanship alongside more contemporary designs. The result is a carefully considered, alluring combination of rock 'n roll, minimalistic chic and playful shapes. It’s where stylish pieces interact with mature artistry and classic form.
All the pieces are made in the same vein of love, often overlapping and crossing genres to redefine what are typically considered beautiful. The essence of Yellow is to create pieces of art that are not only wearable, but that are progressive and timeless and that make people feel good. Jessica learned her craft through countless hours of experimentation. A couple of years after starting Yellow she enrolled at Studio Jewelers, a jewellery trade school in Manhattan, New York City to fine-tune the details missed without a mentor and graduated in October 2015.
