Meet the Team

Josephine Tournebize

 

She is French native, from Paris who came in 2011 to study an Extended Diploma Level 3 in Art and Design Craft at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham.

There, she learned how to design and produce handcrafted jewellery pieces using traditional techniques and graduated with triple Distinctions in 2013.

Whilst still at University, Josephine was very interested in learning more about the longevity of a design and in developing her technical skills.

From 2012 to 2014 she worked as a bench jeweller for a local family jewellery repair business. The very valuable experience she gained stretched and developed her knowledge and practical skills further.

All together with university and employment, she showed eclectic knowledge to inform her design, practical and professional techniques, skills and built experience.

Her passion for jewellery and social cohesion lead her toward teaching. While working as a jewellery tutor for young adults with mixed abilities, she completed her PTTL’S Certificate in 2015 (Preparing to Teach in theLifelong Learning Sector).

This amazing experience has given her the chance to understand that jewellery making is more than just a craft. It is an opportunity to express oneself, build confidence, develop social skills and so much more. It can also be perceived as an alternative to speaking therapy.

She created Tournebize Jewellery in 2015, to offer and share all her experiences combined in one place of busininess and expended it with the help of her partner Rory who joined the business in 2020.

Rory Smith

 

Born in Stourbridge, Rory first started his journey as an apprentice engineer in chemical plant. He had to know all engineering standards from draftsmen to manufacturing process.

Then on he became a bespoke fabricator working for big companies to create and manufacture intricate structures such as floating staircases.

Those invaluable skills have taken Rory from working on very large structure to tiny intricate items.

His vast knowledge of tools and manufacturing techniques as well as his keen eye for accuracy are transferring perfectly to work in jewellery and bring a new dimension to all our repairs and process.
