Hi! I'm Nicola, a jewellery maker and design artist based in the alpine playground of Wanaka New Zealand. Many of my designs are inspired by the surrounding mountains, and every piece is designed and finished by hand in my local studio. I hope you like what you see. Happy shopping!
A selected range of my designs are now available as gold plated sterling silver. More coming soon. If you have your eye on a particular design not currently available, please get in touch and I'll see what I can do!
The personal touch
Every piece is designed and finished by hand in my home studio in Wanaka New Zealand. To begin, the piece will either be hand fabricated or cast using the lost wax casting process and/or a combination of both. From here, I meticulously hand finish each piece, including all the sawing, soldering, filing, sanding, polishing and buffing.
inspired by my surroundings
The surrounding mountains inspire me every day with their constantly changing moods, facades and textures.
rough raw textures
I love all things textural, and just love manipulating and playing with metals in different ways to achieve a unique look.
Every purchase is carefully packaged inside a custom designed giftbox.
SUPPORTING THE KEA CONSERVATION TRUST
For every item sold from the Love Our Kea collection, I will donate $10 to New Zealand's Kea Conservation Trust. Cheeky by nature, the kea is an endangered species and also the world's only alpine parrot. They live right here, high in the mountains above Wanaka.
