Designer Louise Douglas brings a love of art, nature and fashion to her keepsake pieces which are all handcrafted in the vibrant and beautiful city of Nelson, New Zealand. With an organic aesthetic borne from her upbringing in nature’s surroundings, Louise’s designs express memories of a childhood spent exploring the native forest and rugged seaside.
Each intricate design is originally carved from wax. These delicate models are then cast into silver and bronze and each is finished by hand. The sterling silver is oxidized for an antique finish, while the bronze is dipped in 22k satin gold. Chains, clasps, and ear-wires are sterling silver or 14k rolled gold. Many items are also embellished with an array of high-quality freshwater pearls or semiprecious stones. Louise Douglas Jewellery takes pride in the high quality and hand finishing of all their pieces.
