Nicki Cliff is the creative force behind Lily Griffin Jewellery. “I’ve been very lucky to have a wonderful upbringing in New Zealand, and I’ve loved taking a fresh look at our country’s natural diversity to find inspiration for my New Zealand Natives Range.”Lily Griffin jewellery is designed and handcrafted by Nicki in her tiny studio at home in Auckland, around working part time and looking after her energetic and expressive children, Lily and Griffin. Incredibly Nicki is a self taught jeweller. She models designs in fine silver and then casts them in sterling silver, adding touches of colour to some pieces with porcelain paint. We love her pieces for their delicate beauty and the fact that every piece is painstakingly handmade, her attention to detail is evident in each petal and every tiny brush stroke.
