ABOUT CHERISE

"I've spent my lifetime in love with the wild natural beauty of the Pacific and, like the Hawaiian and Maori cultures, I believe that spirituality comes from a connection with the land. My art education began in London as an addition to my international business degree. Since then I've studied and honed my craft in New York, Honolulu, and San Francisco. I’ve travelled the world and spent time in the workshops of blacksmiths, jewellers, sculptors, artists and artisans, on my journey as a jewellery* designer and sculptor. I currently find my inspiration living on a beautiful bush-clad cliff overlooking the waters of Auckland, New Zealand."
