Hurrah the Bird of Prey Jewellery studio is complete and open. I'm so excited to invite you to visit and discover what's on offer.

Every Friday afternoon the studio's open to visitors from 2 pm to 5 pm. If for some reason, the studio isn't open that week, I'll advertise the fact on Facebook, and Instagram so do keep an eye out. And if you want to visit but can't make it during these open hours, please feel free to text to make an appointment during the week 027 973 1642.
At the studio, I stock bijoux collections of travel-inspired jewellery as seen on the website www.birdofprey.co.nz along with my handmade market stock, including one-of-a-kind and limited edition lines...
I also offer a jewellery repair service here in Gisborne, so you can drop off anything you need fixing or altered during these open hours. It's usually best to see you in person as I may need to take measurements, then I can give you the best service.
People tell me they love the studio and ask where did I get it. Well after waiting very patiently for local builders to come back with quotes, to no avail, we stumbled across some timber pods under construction in Napier.
Upon investigation, we discovered we could have one custom built within the month and transported to the site. Too easy. Luckily we were away the day it was craned onto the site as I'm sure it was rather hair-raising with trees and buildings to narrowly avoid.
I set to shortly after, liming the interior ply and staining the exterior board and batten - plenty splashed where it shouldn't be but luckily there was enough to finish. Nothing like a bit of DIY to save some money.
My partner finished the studio with a fabulous timber deck, a much improved transition from the house, which prompted customers to suggest a weekly open afternoon, ideal for the quieter months when there are no markets to attend here in Gizzy.
You will find Bird of Prey Jewellery at 12 Wilson Street, Gisborne.
Just look out for the blue letterbox and a hedge on the right, and you'll see an arrow pointing the way to my garden studio where all the magic happens.
If you've seen some jewellery you liked the look of online, come and take a closer look.
Time it right, and you may find me finishing the week with a glass of wine, and one to share.
