Karin Rae’s love for jewellery began at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa, where she studied a BA Fine Art (Jewellery and Metal Techniques). ⁠ In 2008, she completed a semester at the Pforzheim Hochschule in Germany, which solidified her decision to start a brand of her own.⁠ Drawing inspiration from her diverse South African and German familial heritage, Karin breathed life into her dream and launched Dear Rae in 2010. ⁠
