The Designer and Creator
About New Zealand Jeweller, Lynaire Kibblewhite
Jewellery is a multi faceted commodity. It has value for its intrinsic worth, for its connection to family and friends; past, present and future, and it is the finishing touch to any outfit, it will take you from 'passer to chic' !
How I started.....
For as far back as I can remember I have been creating things. It is very rewarding taking raw materials and fashioning them into something useful.
For many years my creative artistry was focused on selecting beautiful fabrics and turning them into clothes for my daughters and myself. However, it was my love of detail and fine jewellery which led me into gold-smithing.
My training to be a goldsmith began in the mid 1990's at a private jewellery school in Australia. I was taught how to design and hand craft jewellery - I simply loved it.
My journey as a goldsmith has led me down exciting and varied paths, one of the best being all the people I have met.
It is a privilege having clients who love my work, have faith in my ability to design, and always return for more.

"Over the past 20 years I have been the lucky recipient of several pieces of jewellery crafted by Lynaire. On every occasion, whether by gift or request and whether for smaller or more significant projects, Lynaire has been a delight to work with. She approaches every step of the process with creativity, perfectionism, originality and flare. Her attention to the quality of materials, the integrity of her handiwork and her commitment to creating an item that 'fits' the person, is unrelenting. The result is not only a personalised item of jewellery, equal or surpassing in quality and investment to any Haute Couture piece, but also a work of art to treasure for generations."
