CONTEMPORARY NEW ZEALAND JEWELLERY
I am a New Zealander from the south of the south and as such much of my work derives from the spectacular landscape and botanical beauty around me. My work usually ends up in a feeling of 'organic-ness', in an undefined sense. The wearer may be unsure what it is exactly. A piece may infer both the land or sea, darkness and light, the sinister and ethereal, budding, or the beauty of decay. The result is part my observation, part whimsy, and I hope, conveys my love of our island New Zealand.
Beneath the deepest layers of the ocean lives an unknown world of organic forms, darkness, pools of colour and flashes of light.
