Poignant, precious, profound: Legacy Collection offers handmade pieces that are a striking token of justice, equality, forgiveness and freedom.
Hand-crafted and encased in precious metal, every Legacy Collection piece – from dazzling jewellery to iconic art – is created from the original fence of South Africa’s Robben Island prison, the notorious Cape Town Island prison that housed freedom fighters including Nelson Mandela, Ahmed Kathrada, Walter Sisulu and many more during South Africa’s oppressive apartheid years.
Born and raised in South Africa, Charmaine witnessed the cruelty of apartheid as a child and saw the miracle transformation of her country and the release of Nelson Mandela.
She watched his path to becoming the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994. Charmaine always had a passion and vision to promote the message of forgiveness and peace that former President Nelson Mandela shared. In 2012 her vision came true.
