Janine Binneman Jewellery (JBJD) has partnered with the South African Federation for Mental Health and will be donating 10% of each semi colon jewellery piece sold to SAFMH.
The semi colon project was created to raise awareness for people struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicide. The semi-colon is a symbol of hope and perseverance worldwide as it is representative of when an author decides to use a semi-colon to continue a sentence rather than end it. JBJD has taken this concept to new heights with her beautiful range of semi-colon necklaces and rings that can be worn daily so that one can constantly be reminded to persevere and push through, even when times are tough.
Janine Binneman is renowned for producing exciting and meaningful jewellery that touches the hearts of her clients. She believes that mental health is just as important as physical health since one’s mind and body are inseparable and hopes that more and more people will lean on family and friends for support when struggling and make use of the help available to them.
Her semi-colon range is extremely close to her heart and was developed to raise awareness for those fighting these battles daily. This range is a powerful reminder that we all have the power to continue our stories.

Our dear colleague, Elna Welman (Director of Pietermaritzburg Mental Health Society), passed away unexpectedly after a short illness on Thursday, 11 August 2016.
Elna was well-loved and admired for her enduring commitment to persons with disabilities; she will always be remembered for her courageous and warm heart and especially her passion to help and support those in need of care.
We are all united in our grief and our memories of her incredible spirit.
