1962 was my first encounter with jewellery manufacturing, when I was successful in gaining a position at “House of Hawke” a large jewellery manufacturer in Northcote.

Dianne and I were already an item at the time – hence the chosen name Dwayne.  During the 1960’s while studying at Melbourne University for a Bachelor of Science and Diploma of Education, both Dianne and I kept the jewellery manufacturing running. Although teaching full time, Dianne and I spent our free time making jewellery for family and friends.

We conducted the Dwayne Jewellery part time until 1979, when I left teaching and headed full time into the jewellery manufacturing business. We worked from the back shed seven days a week and in 1980 built a double garage to house the business.

We built up a steady clientele through quality, honesty and integrity – the three main pillars of our business.

In 1987 Dianne and I built the premises in Paula Crescent and registered the name Dwayne Designs and continued to provide reliable and high standard service. Even today, regardless of our location not being amongst high profile shopping areas, customers both old and new still find their way to Paula Crescent.

In the beginning to encourage customers we conducted Party Plans and spread the word of Dwayne Jewellery among peoples living rooms. Slowly but surely we earned the trust of our cliental and they started coming to our physical business. Now we have three generations of the one family as regular customers. During the early years we could not afford to finance the manufacture of fine jewellery, and we focused on fashion jewellery. Today we handle both. Fashion jewellery is an important asset to anyone’s wardrobe and compliments both fashion and fine jewellery at an affordable price. Everyone has the desire to wear the jewellery of his or her choice and our aim is to provide the opportunity for doing so. We take pride in the knowledge that our customers are like family.

Dwayne Design maintains a reputation as one of the leading jewellers. It was a great honour and a surprise that some of our customers recommended us for the Victorian Bridal Industry Awards where we maintained a finalist position and also was nominated for the Leader Paper awards in Manningham.
