Tianne is a goldsmith and stone setter who lives in Berkshire. Her dad, a diamond mounter, was a major influence for her, and at the age of 18 she decided she wanted to follow in his footsteps and be a jeweller.
Originally from East London, Tianne loves to make mechanical pieces that move and says her pieces are regularly described as flamboyant. When she’s not at her jewellers bench, she can be found out on the open road on her motorbike.
On what first interested her in making jewellery, Tianne told the BBC: “My dad was a goldsmith. I remember going into the workshop with him as a young child and then going in when I got older, that was what started my journey.”
Tianne All That Glitters
Tianne is a jeweller in series two of All That Glitters on BBC Two. The other All That Glitters contestants competing for the UK’s next up-and-coming jewellery star are Bonnie, David, Emma, Jack, Nyanda, Piers and Steve.
On what she took away or learned from the show that she’s still doing today, she said: “I learnt so much about myself. It taught me to be more patient and have more confidence in myself. When the challenges were happening, I thought, I don’t know what I’m doing here – but it meant I needed to be more patient. That gave me the chance to have space and time to learn new skills. I had to actually slow the process down and take a moment to think about what I’m doing not just knocking it out. Sometimes the planning of the piece actually takes longer than the making of it. I always tried to just get the plan in place and get it right the first time, as you wouldn’t have time to fix it!”
All That Glitters star Tianne is 25 years old.
