New Wedding Band design available MADE TO ORDER:

Damascus inspired Finger Print Wedding Ring

What is more unique to you and your beloved but your very own finger prints? The Finger Print Wedding Ring design was inspired by
the age old technique of Damascus steel (used in swords and handcrafted knife blades). Damascus has various patterns in the metal which
can look similar to a finger print or wood grain.

Each of these rings is completely unique. My idea here is to take a finger print from your own finger and the finger of your partner.
I then combine these prints to create your own unique Damascus inspired Finger Print Ring. Each of your finger prints will be recognizable
in your finished ring.

If you are looking for a ring that combines something personal to both you and your partner, then this is the ring for you!



Still Life/Wild Places - A group exhibition on now at Katherine Mansfield House & Garden 25 Tinakori Road, Wellington



Cremation Pendants are available to be Made to Order: Click here to view in the Online store

The Cremation Pendant has been designed to hold either ashes of a loved one, hair, a tooth, or any small personal object to keep as a momento.
One side of the pendant has a glass window so that the contents can be viewed, the second side has a piece of N.Z Greenstone (Pounamu) set into place.

The pendant can be worn either way so that either the glass viewing window, or the greenstone can be shown.
The idea here is that the pendant's contents can either be hidden or revealed to others. Either way this is a sentimental piece to be worn and kept close.



New Moth Earrings available now! Click here to view in the online store

Wellington Fashion Week:
Future Face of Wellington Competition 

18 - 22 April 2012 

Stylist: Rebecca McKenzie-Watson
Photography: Tim Watson @ Studio 62  

 Rebecca McKenzie-Watson: "The theme for the Wellington Fashion Week shoot was "International Fashion Weeks, and Wellington".  I used all WFW designers' current in-store stock to recreate some of the looks we had just seen for Fall 2012 on the runways of Milan, New York, London and Paris. Then I pulled together a consistent look for Wellington but gave it a local twist.  I wanted to dispel any lingering notion that NZ follows international trends rather than contributes to them."
