Adele Stewart, Hokitika

As a bee-keepers daughter, her childhood memories are full of flowers and insects and adventures to isolated places. She was lucky enough to gain an apprenticeship in gemstone setting straight out of school and promptly set gems for New Zealand’s top jewellers for the following 18 years. This highly specialised focus has given her a keen eye for intricacies. She hopes her work inspires you to look closer and be filled with wonder at the sophisticated designs of nature.
