Hello, I live in sunny Nelson and have been creating my leather brooches for about 10 years now.
Our unique leather flowers have been produced for over 30 years. My Mother first started making them in Wellington, NZ. She developed the colouring technique that makes them so life like. She passed on the skills to me when she moved to Australia in order to keep the "handmade in NZ" label. I continue to strive to uphold the high quality product she believed in. She is actually still making them in Australia at over 70 years of age!
I love walking through flower gardens to get new ideas in order to bring leather to life.
I occasionally still see someone wearing one of my Mothers original flower brooches, they truly are long lasting treasured gifts.
