Bloom is a delicate collection of quiet femininity, inspired by the joy and gentle strength of flowers in full bloom. Each little petal is hand textured with tiny botanical details to create a new, unique piece every time. Handcrafted just for you, so will vary slightly from each other in length and structure. No two pairs of earrings are the same.
Made entirely of 14k gold filled materials, Bloom has far superior quality and durability than most gold plated jewellery. Gold filled rings (approximately 16mm diameter), with a scalloped gold filled disc, enclosed by two gold filled petals on either side. Hammered botanical textures. Hanging from gold filled ear hooks.
Total length from top of ear hook is 35mm (3.5cm).
A love for Aotearoa is the primary inspiration behind Nicki’s beautiful pieces - “I feel very lucky to have been born in New Zealand. I remember long lazy school holidays camping in Oakura Bay and Mangawhai Heads, making daisy and buttercup chains, investigating beach rock pools, and going on bush walks through native forests”. Nicki started creating jewellery in 2013, wanting to evoke these memories in her work, and with a background in painting and sculpture, she experimented with porcelain paint and sculpting fine silver. Being totally self-taught meant lots of researching techniques and testing ideas - helping the pieces come to life through handcrafting! All of this is done at her small studio in Auckland, overlooking the family courtyard garden, where Nicki works in between looking after her children; Lily and Griffin.
