Erika Cronje is the owner, designer and craftsman of V’dodili. In 2008 she graduated at the University of Potchefstroom, where she obtained her degree in Bsc. Consumer Science. Instead of furthering her studies in this course, she decided to fulfil her dream by becoming a goldsmith. In 2009 she started her three year course at Tshwane University of Technology. When she was in 2nd year (2010) she started to build her client base, by manufacturing jewellery in silver. By 2011 she obtained her Gold license. Her client base grew and so did her passion. She was also awarded a prize by Anglo America for a piece that she designed and manufactured in platinum for the Plat Africa competition in 2011.
