Stop At: Christine The Artist Goldsmith, 106b Ocean View Road, Oneroa, Auckland, Waiheke Island 1081 New Zealand

For 40 years Christine has drawn her inspiration from the physical reality around her, travelling widely to seek out jewels, precious metals, shells and stones – natural materials on which to set her imagination free. All Christine’s jewellery is personally handmade. No two pieces are the same. Metals are acquired only in their raw form; neither setting nor polishing is entrusted to others. Whether bold or delicate, in gold or silver, each piece is built and shaped with traditional tools and the now rarely used mouth-blown soldering torch. Acute attention-to-detail combines with refreshing practicality, so that her rings remain comfortable, her earpieces and necklaces light enough to wear all day.
