Deanna Gracie

Deanna Gracie creates contemporary, bespoke jewellery just out of Christchurch in West Melton. From her studio, small, exquisite, objects of art are coaxed into being and are then purchased by jewellery lovers and sent around the world to adorn the lives of many. Deanna has been designing and creating jewellery for more than twenty-five years. It is the natural environment that she finds so exciting and creatively inspiring. 

Favourite techniques include intricate saw piercing, bonding contrasting, precious metals and combining different metal textures and colours together. Solid sterling silver is one of her favourite metals. Her koru ring designs consist of red or yellow gold bonded together on top of solid sterling to form stunning, organic rings that are ideally suited as tokens of love for this modern age. Each custom designed piece is painstakingly created by hand and it is the heart and soul and hard work she puts into each piece that sets her jewellery apart and makes it so unique. The culmination of skills, flair for design and having an innate understanding of working with clients results in the creation of fine jewellery with an emphasis on quality and personal service. 

 “I embrace the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, in which small imperfection is seen as one of the highest forms of beauty. This also emphasises the handmade nature of the jewellery I create.”
