Found things, natural things, lovely things: the locally-inspired jewellery Hana made

Hana Makin began her jewellery-making journey in England, but now produces her pieces from her home beside beautiful Petone Beach. Inspired by this and the nearby Zealandia Sanctuary, her work features our fauna and landscape prominently (and in the case of the landscape, literally – small found items often make their way into her work). She’s inspired by found things, natural things and old things, and she loves handcrafting her Hana Made Jewellery in her workshop by the sea.

Maker Faire is coming to Wellington!

If you live in the Wellington region you won’t want to miss this: Maker Faire is a great gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists, from scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
