About The Makers

The Makers


On our online gallery you will find handmade and beautifully crafted New Zealand jewellery.  

The Makers are very proud to represent a diverse group of artisans from around our beautiful country.  Our ethos is to represent artisan - makers, to promote hand-made, local talent and to bring those to you, our wonderful customers, hungry for beautiful, meaningful taonga (treasures). We began in 2015 as a small pop-up gallery located in our workshop, based in the funky Te Aro arts precinct in Wellington. What started with a spark of an experiment, blossomed into a thriving jewellery gallery, operating from our bustling studio, welcoming in new local artists, and making wonderful connections with our clientele.  In 2020, we made the decision to take our gallery to solely online sales. Our business has always worked around our needs as humans, as parents, as sisters and brothers, and as artists. This move online means that the business can support us as our families grow, and our studio locations have changed around the country. While we are an online gallery, we are still humans and artists behind The Makers, and we welcome contact from you, our wearers, who will always be the focus of why we create jewellery.
