Unique hand made jewellery using fine gem stones, semi precious stones, silver, shell, pearl and glass.
Although by profession I am a scientist, my interest and experience of craft started at school. I started making jewellery a few years ago when my daughter’s necklaces were all stolen and I made her one using antique glass beads that I had collected. Subsequently I have learnt different techniques – most recently knotting pearls, which my mother has always done.
I am inspired by the colours and textures of semi precious stones and find spacing them on silver wire displays best their individual variety and beauty. I also love the colours in natural materials such as Paua and Black Lip mussel shells and the wide variety of coloured pearls which are now available.
