& Objets d' Art

Come and visit my unique Showroom and Workshop at 17 Whitmore Street, Wellington where everything in store is handcrafted on the premises. I aim to create high quality, unique pieces of adornment and Objets d' Art. I specialize in creating special commissions for customers including Wedding and Engagement rings and special gifts in the hope to create pieces that will become heirlooms and one day antiques of the future.

I look forward to seeing you soon,
Kind regards,

Steph Lusted.

Steph Lusted Jewellery became well known for creating Butterfly Brooches featuring real butterfly wings encased in resin (no insects harmed in this process) and jewellery collections inspired by Anatomy or Medical Implements. The combination of precious metals, handcrafted detail and contemplative subjects, is signature to her work.

Steph was born and raised in New Zealand where creating jewellery and 3d art objects became an obsession for her at an early age. Studying Visual Arts, she majored in Jewellery Design and Manufacture, graduating with 'distinction' in 1998. Unusual materials and contemporary ideas were the foundation of her unique style.

The success of exhibiting her work in N.Z and Australia alongside an interest in the history and tradition of Handcraft lead her to further studies abroad.
