Attracting lovers of nature and the abstract, jewellery designer Louise Douglas hand-makes her organic-inspired collections under her own label in the vibrant and beautiful city of Nelson.
We chat to Louise and find out about her love for the ocean, her escapes over the hill to Golden Bay and her favourite dish to cook friends. Spending a few hours watching her turn moulds and metals into mystic and magic, we oohed and ah-ed over her beautifully delicate, however remarkably robust, creations.
Located on Nile Street, the Louise Douglas Jewellery studio is as warm and lovely as its occupants. If you're heading down to Nelson, pop in and say hello from us! I am sure Louise and her wonderful assistant Sarah would love to meet the extended Tessuti family. And if you're lucky, you'll get to meet their curly black haired (and very smoochy) four legged companion Daisy!
