Cameron Jewellery Quaility Handcrafted Jewellery.
ameron Jewellery has been manufacturing
jewellery in New Zealand for the past 26 years. The boutique is owned by Peter & Jill Cameron. The store creates handmade pieces of unique jewellery crafted by Peter Cameron and Sam Wrait, or other jewellers from around Manawatu or within New Zealand and Australia. In 1984 the Camerons saw a gap in the market and decided that they would go into the business of making and creating unique jewellery pieces.
Design ideas are drawn from fashion at the time, what other jewellers are creating and magazines. They also have meetings once a month with other jewellery makers to discuces ideas. Sam also discused how he draws alot of his ideas from the stones themselves. Among their own handmade pieces, is work by local jeweller Marty Jestin, who creates unique works based around the ‘Kiwi’ way of life. (Left) Sam creating a piece of jewellery.
