Curlicue NZ Jewellery

Curlicue NZ offers quality and distinctive handmade jewellery that complements your individuality and reflects who you are, yet is affordable. Curlicue NZ aims to create timeless and elegant handcrafted jewellery with a distinctive New Zealand essence. All pieces are personally created at my home in Auckland, New Zealand and tested for wearability.
My inspirations definitely come from nature and the natural environment around me – we have such a beautiful country rich in fauna and flora – and I love to intertwine the colours with Sterling Silver wire wrapped in distinctive Maori-stylised designs.

How did your business begin?

I’ve always loved drawing, making and creating things. However, when I became a mum, most of my opportunities to create went out the window. About 5 years ago my husband gave me a jewellery-making tutorial voucher for my birthday. I had SO much fun and my love for designing and creating jewellery started from there. I started Curlicue NZ Jewellery at the end of 2013 – not knowing anything about business…. it’s a steep learning curve!! But I’m loving learning about all facets of a business and keep changing and evolving my business and products over time. It has become more important to me to incorporate my love for our environment, and sustainability into my jewellery pieces, including the use of 100% recycled Sterling Silver – which is awesome!

What gets you up in the morning?

My daughter(!) and probably my 2 cats too, they all like to be fed!

When you're not working you are

A full time mum, looking after my daughter and the household, and constantly trying to keep my business life in perspective with the rest of my life!

Anything else?

I’ve always been creative and enjoy all sorts of craft activities with my daughter, including painting, drawing, cake decorating and recently re-decorating her room.
