Adele Stewart

Adele Stewart

 

As a beekeepers daughter, Adele's childhood memories are full of flowers and insects and adventures to the high country. Adele 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 16 years. This highly specialised focus has given me a keen eye for intricacies. I hope my work inspires you to look closer and be filled with wonder at the sophisticated designs of nature.

Adele's jewellery is handmade near Little River, Akaroa.
