Personal Statement

On arrival in New Zealand 30 years ago (after living in SE Asia, West Africa and the Middle East) I signed up for a course in jewellery design and construction at Wellington Polytech and have been making various types of jewellery ever since. Ten years later I accompanied my husband on transfer to Saudi Arabia, became interested in old hand-made Yemeni "Bedouin" silver beads on sale in the souk and started a successful business incorporating them (with amber and semi-precious gemstones) into jewellery wearable by western women. As a child living in Sri Lanka, I was fascinated by the colours, designs and workmanship of the jewellery there and, as an adult, continued to seek out craftsmen and silversmiths in the various countries we lived. I am still fascinated by gemstones and silver beads and forage in markets whenever we travelled. Each piece of jewellery is one of kind and unique and made with care and attention to detail.
