I met Philippa many moons ago, in fact she was still studying her craft and regularly came up to the restaurant I worked at with a piece of jewellery crafted out of something unexpected, that I simply had to have. Like bold works of art, her coveted items, often one-of-a-kind are a statement piece. When you're in the mood for a simple outfit, throw on a Philippa piece and your outfit has gone from plain to fabulous. I love the way Philippa often shoots the jewellery on her hand as soon as she is finished crafting it - making no apologies for the remnants of her craft on her fingertips. Philippa fell in love with the craft of jewellery on a trip to Mexico and has maintained a rawness in her work that makes you feel like you can see where her fingers have worked that piece of metal into shape. Many of Philippa's jewels are on-offs and therefore we may not always have her range available on our website but pop along to our Auckland store and try something on. Her jewellery just cannot be captured in a picture.
