I started making jewellery with Daniel Clasby in 1976 and became a partner in Fingers Contemporary Jewellery Gallery in 1978. Early works in non-precious materials are held in the Museum of New Zealand, the Dowse Museum, the Auckland Museum and in private collections.
My goal is to create jewellery which is contemporary but also sufficiently enduring in its design and materials to be worn permanently and to age beautifully and I've specialized in working in platinum and in high carat gold of alluvial origin from the South Island's West Coast. By using traditional techniques and making each ring by hand I'm able to custom make to individual requirements.
Fingers Contemporary Jewellery Gallery is my only retail outlet and I'm available there to discuss my work most Saturdays between 11am and 4pm. The price of each ring is dependent on the quantity and cost of the materials used, and a quote can be given when I have the details I need. Prices shown are in New Zealand dollars, include GST and are approximate.
Enquiries and orders can also be made by e mail and all work sent by courier has a money-back guarantee.
