Free parking is on the street outside the house, and you will have a private keyed entrance. The private ensuite is just inside the entrance door and the bedroom is at the top of a short flight of stairs.

Two outdoor decks which get morning sun and which offer native bush views are available for your use. Feed the birds or just soak up their song from your treetop room.

jewellery tuition

Make a ring in an hour. For an extra fee you may arrange a session with Brian and make a sterling silver ring in an hour!

It’s hard work sometimes but always a lot of fun! And quite educational.

Boys have a particular affinity for making things.

And can get very precise sometimes.

In my teaching I like to encourage a short burst of experimentation and spontaneity (using copper to practise on), then I will help you do your chosen 'stuff' to the silver. So have some fun with a hammer and anvil, or tell a story with symbols stamped into the metal, or do a precise or wacky texture. Or take it quietly and make a beautiful silver ring band.

Fee for one person: $60, two people: $80. Includes the silver.

We make hand-crafted jewellery from our Bush Jewellery studio.

We each make jewellery of our own designs and we sell at various New Zealand stores and galleries.

Brian also teaches jewellery-making classes: students of jewellery starting out on a new career, children curious about making stuff, and adults who are interested in having a go.

A specialty is the one hour silver ring session.
