Artisan Jewellery Handmade With New Zealand Flora & Fauna

Hi there. I'm Rina Ward. Jewellery Artist. Intrepid Nature Scavenger. I collect bits of nature (most often native to New Zealand). And I create them into beautiful one-of-a-kind jewellery. These organic treasures make perfect gifts for loved ones (or yourself), as the attributes of these nature finds reflect your personal stories. They also share your individuality and uniqueness. Welcome to Nostalgem.
