Lucinda Jane Hepburn
South African born, Lucinda Jane Hepburn spent four years at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in Cape Town, South Africa. She acquired her Bachelor of Technology degree with Honours (cum laude) in Jewellery Design and Manufacture. She was awarded the top design student throughout her years of study and further showcased her keen eye for design by placing in several top design competitions including: AngloGold/Ashanti Auditions, Plat Africa, DTC South African – Shining Light Awards Diamond Design Collection.
Lucinda has since launched her own successful jewellery brand, Pretty Found Things. Known for its excellent craftsmanship and fine detail, Pretty Found Things jewellery is designed to be put on and never taken off. Beautiful and timeless, each intricate piece is crafted using solid gold, platinum or silver featuring rare gemstones and unique diamonds. Found and kept forever, there is something pretty for everyone!
