I'm Hana, an English jeweller, living and creating by the Kiwi seaside since 2016.
I began my jewellery-making journey in the stunning city of York, but now produce my work from my home beside beautiful Petone Beach. Inspired by this ever changing landscape and the nearby Zealandia EcoSanctuary, my work features the fauna and landscape of Aotearoa prominently. I often take my inspiration from found things, natural things and old things, and love plying my craft in my workshop by the sea.
