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.....
Since I was knee high to a grass hopper I have been making things.
It is so satisfying taking raw materials and fashioning them into something useful.
For many years my creativity was kept busy by designing and making clothes for my daughters (occasionally my husband) and myself. However, it was my love of detail and the way jewellery completed an outfit 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 many exciting and varied paths; from the countries I have visited, to the people I have meet.
I absolutely love what I do and I love seeing my clients stand tall and feel special wearing a beautiful piece of jewellery.
