Each piece of jewellery for sale at The Makers is designed and made by hand in New Zealand.

It's a start to finish 'one piece at a time' process, that means each item is unique and precious.

We are proud to sell online five jewellery labels created by four up and coming New Zealand artists, and 18 more artists available exclusively instore.


Vaune Mason

A love of animals, landscapes and gardening influence this amazing artist. 

Vaune's jewellery is incredibly wearable; dress it up or down and your your life will be all the richer for it, whether it's her little hand carved pendants or utterly unique rings.


GG Jewellery

Gemma of GG Jewellery is the maker, shaker and creator of this meandering collection of jewellery.

Sentimentality and wearability are the keynotes of her design conception.  

Ingrained elements in these pieces include warm polished copper and bronze and rosy golds.

Natalie Salisbury

Contemporary jewellery designer and maker Natalie Salisbury Jewellery creates dramatic yet wearable unique pieces of work to adorn the body. Natalie combines materials such as lace into collections that explore pattern and texture, and focusses mainly on silver and gold-plate with the occassional beautiful stone delicately set, adding a burst of colour.

The Wild

The Wild is a contemporary jewellery label created by Vaune Mason and Annie Collins. The current collection  'Aotearoa' is based on New Zealand animals, past and present.

Each piece is lovingly made by hand in Wellington, New Zealand and crafted in solid sterling silver or bronze.


Buster Collins

Buster Collins is the jewellery label/alter ego/best friend of creator Annie Collins.

Annie enjoys making pieces that are solid, strong and wearable. She draws inspiration from the animal kingdom and nature, as well as mythology and history, and tend to have rough oxidised textures and a scattering of stones.

Our inspiring Guest Artist pieces are currently only for sale in store. 

We plan to have their work online soon, however, so watch this space!
