Dale is the designer and creator of Tekschur, a handmade jewellery and accessories range.
Tekschur grew during 2020, the year of the lockdowns when normal business could no longer exist. Starting out as a hobby, Dale's friends and family showed huge interest in her handmade earrings and that was the beginning of Dale's next journey: creating Tekschur into a sustainable small business.
Dale's background in Interior design helped inspire her with use of balance and unity, colour, shape, pattern and texture. And with the Tekschur range, Dale celebrates the beauty found in imperfections, differences and uniqueness
. The name ‘Tekschur’ originates from the phonetic way of pronouncing ‘Texture’ but also has two references:
- TEKS- The Indo-European root meaning "to weave, to fabricate and also "to make”
- CHUR- Reference to Dale's homeland New Zealand in the spelling of ‘Chur’ as in NZ it is a slang word which can mean sweet, cheers, yeah, good, cool & awesome.
Put together TEKSCHUR means TO MAKE AWESOME! All of what Tekschur wants to empower and evoke in the feelings of its customers.
