Artist Bio:

Jeannette has a diploma in Art & Craft, majoring in jewellery and painting, from Hungry Creek Art & Craft School, Puhoi. She then developed her home studio where her jewellery art business has been operating for 16 years.

Jeannette works with sterling silver, copper & vitreous enamels. She designs and handcrafts each piece using traditional silversmithing techniques. NZ culture and characteristics and the natural environment influence her designs. The vividness and vibrancy of the enamelling with the coolness of sterling silver and the warmth of copper come together as a perfect compliment of colour and contrast.
