Est. in 1998, our store and gallery is in Raglan, a small town in the North Island of New Zealand. The main studio is situated at the back of the store, where one of us is always working away. We happily welcome a chat with our visitors and can give you detailed information and history about the stones and metals. We're also able to customise and alter our pieces to suit your needs.
We are fortunate to work with a selection of local artists who have their original paintings, prints and objects amongst our pieces. We have an extensive range of Pounamu carvings, all genuine stone made only by New Zealand artists.
Surrounding the jewellery and the art is a handpicked selection of semi-precious stones in raw forms, polished stones and incredible geodes available for purchase.
We look forward to seeing you in store sometime!
