|About Femke Kleisen|
Femke Kleisen was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. Since her childhood she has loved to express her creativity. She matriculated at Pro Arte High School majoring in subjects like sculpting, fine art and design. Obviously she wanted to work with her hands to be able to produce her own ideas.
Her dream was to design and produce all kinds of jewellery and naturally she found her calling.
After receiving her qualification as a goldsmith in the Netherlands at the “Middelbare Technische Vakschool” in Schoonhoven, Femke returned to Pretoria in 1995 where she has been successfully running her own business as a certified goldsmith. Other hobbies she enjoys include creating mosaics and ceramics as well as other art forms like painting, especially with water colours.
