Treasures from the Ocean: Louise Douglas Jewellery

Inspired by the beauty of the oceans,
this most exquisitely enchanting jewellery
is made by kiwi Louise Douglas.
After an adventure designing jewellery
in NYC for various high-end labels,
she has now returned home to New Zealand,
producing work under her own name.
Louise has captured the delicate tracery 
of sea lace and sea pods in this collection.

So every single piece,
is like a treasure from the deep blue sea.

  1. I love pearls. The few jewelry pieces I have are quite traditional. These are a very modern expression of a centuries old adornment. Beautiful!

  2. Hi Virginia, thank you for sharing her amazing work...
    these pieces are beautiful and show that creativity is truly special particularly when associated with simplicity and natural flair...I'm so in love with her earrings (image no 2) and the bracelet in no 3 (can't wait to check out her site)

  4. Thank you everybody for the lovely comments, and yes, aren't they just amazingly beautiful pieces?

    Margaret, the first image is a necklace and is called a Sea Pod Choker. The luscious velvet comes in a variety of colours, from palest pink, and rich chocolate to darkest black.

    Claudia, I absolutely believe that the hardest things to get right in design are the simplest ones - but then they are always the most beautiful, don't you think?

  17. This is a marvelous idea in jewellery design. Putting a coral into a ring design is really a clever idea.
