“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 Nicola Cliff in her tiny studio at home in Auckland, around working part time and looking after her energetic and expressive two year old girl, Lily. Self taught, Nicola models designs in fine silver and then casts them in sterling silver. She adds touches of colour to some pieces with porcelain paint. The paint is fired on, creating a waterproof and totally unique look. Some pieces are hand painted with 24karat gold.
