Handmade Jewellery by Debra Fallowfield Contemporary Jeweller

Debra Fallowfield is arguably New Zealands' most well loved contemporary fine jeweller .Her work has been described by many as "urban icons" or talismans for a modern age.Known both locally and internationally for her unique bold distinctive design ,she has garnered a large and very loyal clientele.Each piece of jewellery is entirely crafted by Debra herself from start to finish,using age old traditions such as forging,wax carving,piercing,soldering,fusing-techniques that are being lost to the new generation of jewellers who chose computer aided design,3D printing and mass production over skill and craftmanship(then have the audacity to call their work "handmade").This makes her jewellery as unique as a finger print, the majority of what you see on this site is bespoke or "one of a kind". This is jewellery created with AROHA* and proud MANA* making it the perfect token of love for an engagement or wedding ring. Debra prefers to use ethically sourced gemstones from around the world, and only uses internationally certified conflict free diamonds,and when available recycled New Zealand gold.Debra takes most of her own photo's on this site,perfering to keep things "as real" as possible.

AROHA -love; affection.

MANA -prestige, authority, control, power, influence, status, spiritual power, charisma - mana is a supernatural force in a person, place or object.

Debra now has a retail store in the quaint Port side town of Port Chalmers Dunedin-open weekends or by appointment.
