NZ Fashion Week 2017
We're thrilled to have been invited by the talented fashion label Wanoa Four to have our jewellery featured along side their latest wool collection at New Zealand fashion week!! Read on to find out more......
NZ Native Wood collection
Our wooden jewellery designs are inspired by and originate from the mighty West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.The driftwoods we collect have journeyed from the expansive Southern forests, washed down rivers and been preserved by the sea as they are transported up the coast and on to the beaches. We choose the densest hardwoods and dry them for up to a year. When we cut into the woods the true colours and textures are revealed. We carve them to the desired forms and set them against precious metals to add weight, contrast and wearability.
The finished jewellery then takes on a new journey of adornment. The rich variety of natural colours will compliment any skin tone, shade of hair or fabric in the garment worn. We choose to create minimal designs with the intention of letting the materials’ qualities stand out. Wearing the jewellery is a multi-sensual experience with the woods taking on the scent of the wearer, creating sound as they touch the metal and visually moving as the wearer moves.
For NZ fashion week we are very excited to be collaborating with Wanoa Four in the 'Wonderful Wool' section. Sharing a common enthusiasm for natural New Zealand products and both having an affiliation with the West Coast of the South Island has given us the opportunity to join forces and represent our part of the country. Wanoa Four brings focus to tailoring and texture using gorgeous fabrics and pure NZ wools. Designed and made in New Zealand. Injecting bursts of fun, street style and culture into the heart of fashion.
Bold hand-crafted jewellery and timeless, pure wool garments. Hitting the runway at this years New Zealand fashion week!!
