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.
Established 2009 in Nelson NZ, we are a small but mighty team at Louise Douglas Jewellery. We are dedicated to crafting precious objects that celebrate love, nature and connection — jewellery that you’ll live in and love always. Proudly New Zealand made, we strive to build lasting relationships with suppliers, peers and you. We value and respect our community as the foundation of our future sustainability.
Great design is important to us. With an organic aesthetic borne from nature’s surroundings, our creations express memories of childhoods spent exploring the native forest and rugged seaside. Reflecting the natural beauty of New Zealand, our keepsake pieces make perfect gifts or travel mementos.
Our creative team first sketch designs on paper then carve each intricate design in wax, using age-old techniques. Items are then cast in silver, gold or bronze using the lost wax casting technique. This hands-on approach and small-scale production retains the integrity of our sculpture-like creations. We take pride in the high quality and hand finishing of all our pieces.
Every individual item of our jewellery is hand-finished in our workshop in the heart of sunny Nelson, New Zealand. Our jewellery is ethically made by people who truly love what they do. When you invest in our jewellery you get personal friendly service, while reducing your carbon footprint and supporting our national economy. That’s a great choice to make!
