Juxtaposing rough with smooth, fine with contemporary, Debra has been at the forefront of jewellery in New Zealand for near on 15 years, with work that continually pushes boundaries between contemporary and fine jewellery.
Using age-old traditions of forging, wax carving, piercing, soldering and fusing, Debra crafts contemporary wedding and engagement rings by hand that are unlike any other. She specialises in bespoke pieces that are as unique as its wearer’s fingerprint.
This makes a refreshing change in a jewellery market saturated with mass-produced replicas.
Solid and impeccably crafted, Debra’s pieces are made with care and intent. Always an ethical jeweller, Debra sources the majority of her gold from boutique one-man mines on the beautiful West Coast of New Zealand. Diamonds and gems are fair trade and Debra is also an ambassador for Charles & Colvard moissanite, an exciting new diamond replacement.
For grooms, I carry a cool dynamic range of men’s rings with the option of customising.
Although based in New Zealand, the majority of my work is sent worldwide. When not in my home studio I sell my work from my retail store in the fantastic city of Dunedin.
I do try to visit Australia at least twice a year and welcome all enquiries.
