Lucy Pierpoint - Jewelry Gallery

Auckland, New Zealand

A jewellery practice centred on a premise of defying obsolescence.

While technological changes improve our lifestyles, they come at a cost, as uncalculated demands on finite resources result in discarded piles of perfectly functional yet technologically obsolete products. Combining an interest in sustainability with the intention to unearth beauty within these materials I create objects that, unlike many mass-produced technological goods proliferating our shelves, are individual and invested with a great deal of time.
