John is a self taught jeweller (Apart from his first learning experience with Peter Minturn at Parnell in 1981). He has worked in the trade for over thirty years, indispersed with periods of travel and horticulture which have inspired his creative insight into jewellery design.
He lives a relaxed life in Matakana now, which gives me the ability to combine horticulture with creating one off pieces of his own design. These designs are influenced by nature and numbers. He is also interested in Sacred Geometry and symbols, all of which you can see reflected in his work. His medium is solely gold, silver, precious and semi precious stones.
