ABOUT the MAKER

Louise Douglas

Louise draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewellery from her upbringing in a natural landscape. Her organic aesthetic expresses memories of a childhood spent exploring New Zealand's native forests and rugged seaside.Starting her first jewellery company at age 18,  Louise relishes in the process of bringing small objects into the world and sending them out to evoke curiosity and beauty.

 

Louise carefully carves each of her original detailed designs by hand in wax from her studio in sunny Nelson, consequently avoiding a mass-manufactured look with her distinctive and timeless style. These delicate models are then cast into silver or bronze, and finished with an array of high-quality freshwater pearls. The silver is oxidized for an antique finish, while the bronze is dipped in 22k gold.

"I believe your jewellery should not only make you feel beautiful - it should connect to the beauty surrounding you."
