Wrapture Gems Jewelry
I am a Jewelry Artist living in beautiful New Zealand, home of the
"Flight of the Concordes" and "Lord of the Rings".
I enjoy working with opal, rare and unique genuine 100% natural gems
and pearls. I am fascinated with natures bounty in the realm of
gemstones and do my best to create a setting to enhance the beauty
of the gemstone I am working with. I have always loved jewellery and
have had a fascination for precious and semi-precious gemstones
since I was child. I remember collecting rocks and waiting for them
to reveal their hidden beauty as they came out of the lapidary
tumbler in my Dads workshop.
Opal is a particular passion of mine and I cut my own freeform solid
opals for use in my jewellery designs. I am loathe to grind away any
of the beautiful fire so I leave most of my opal pieces in free-form
shape. This lends itself to simple designs or to more intricate
wire-woven techniques and metal smithing.
