TALKBACK Introducing Niven McArthur, Director-Merchandise & Marketing Nationwide Jewellers… Where do you live and who do you share your home with? I live on a small rural acreage just out of Macksville on the beautiful NSW mid-north coast with my wife Donna and our growing farmyard menagerie. After leaving school in Balclutha, how did you transition into the jewellery manufacturing trade? I secured a manufacturing jeweller apprenticeship with G & T Young Jewellers who, at that time, had three stores in Dunedin. I had a wonderfully patient teacher, Gordon Ramsay, who was also a master hand engraver. We understand you went on to own a jewellery store … I was awarded NZ Apprentice of the Year toward the end of my apprenticeship training. This led to my working for myself, providing a repair and manufacture service to the trade based in Gore and working above the premise of R E Dawson’s, owned by Trish & Alan Dawson. Alan’s brother Bob was one of my trade-work customers and it was not long before his son Craig came to join me as an apprentice. After Gore I accepted a position assisting Bryan Daniels in the management of Daniels Jewellers in Dunedin. Some years later I opened a jewellery store in Balclutha. The Nationwide Jewellers Group crossed the ditch whilst I was running this business and NZ Group Manager, Doug Erkkila, soon had me convinced of the benefits of becoming a member. How long have you been with Nationwide Jewellers? A retirement from the original Sydney-based Nationwide management team was my opportunity to expand my jewellery career. With Doug’s support I became, as Doug would say, “the Kiwi in the camp” working and learning from Maurie Lewis, then head of the Merchandise & Marketing department and since retired. That was way back in August 1996 making this Spring my 25th anniversary with Nationwide. The 6

JT2021 SPRING

Nationwide Group is a big family within our offices and throughout Australasia. The entire Nationwide staff share ideas, ideals and the workload. We are all about service to both our members and suppliers. Highlight of your career at Nationwide so far? Simply belonging. Belonging to an organisation that holds dear a positive future for the jewellery industry. What keeps you enthusiastic about the industry? As an industry we are responsible for making available to our customers precious heirlooms, with which they mark the milestones in their lives. I still miss the bench and love the custom design process, taking the client’s idea and crafting a beautiful piece of jewellery that will be treasured across generations. What impact have the pandemic lockdowns had on the way you do business? It can be summed up in one word – support. We assist our membership with clear information on trading within a Covid world. We provide promotions retailers can push out to their locked down customers. We provide finance to assist in maintaining stock levels in an uncertain market. Similarly, we assist our suppliers in promoting their product out to member stores when reps cannot travel and supplychains have been compromised. With the Australasia travel bubble closed we will not be able to staff a stand at this year’s JWNZ fair. Instead, we will assist in linking Preferred Suppliers and Retail Members with exclusive offers and support the members pre-Christmas buying with extended credit. Did you have a mentor or a person you looked up to, or impressed you, when you started in the trade. And if so, what was the advice they offered? Who can ever forget Doug Erkkila’s enthusiasm and positive attitude. He loved everyone and wanted nothing more than to see them succeed. Secondly Colin Pocklington. Colin has a way

Niven McArthur

of putting aside the emotion in a situation, finding the important facts and clearly defining a path forward – always with the mantra “we have to do the right thing”. In another life is there another career you would have liked to have pursued? I wanted to be a marine biologist and spent many years on, in and under the water. How do you relax away from the business? I love to garden. I used to think the only good flower was a cauliflower but that is slowly changing. Two things that top your bucket list … I would like to create a permaculture food forest. And I would love to create a piece of jewellery from scratch - pan the gold, fossick for the gemstone and cut it - design the piece and hand make it. What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done? Donna bought me a sky-dive for my 50th. Jumping out of a perfectly good plane – that’s about as exciting as I can handle. Definitely a oncer. What still is the most ‘Kiwi’ thing about you? I think that’s the way I speak. And maybe the way I interact with people. Perhaps that’s a Southern thing? Whose greatest hits would you take to a desert island? Being a jeweller, I think Neil Diamond. If there was one special luxury item you would like to buy for yourself today, what would that be? I would love a big tractor. I don’t need a tractor – but I would love one.

IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY After spending her life around jewellery, gemmologist Abby Shepherd is following in her father’s footsteps. And dad, manufacturing jeweller and owner of Ringcraft Moana in Oakura, Taranaki, Rob Wright, says he is very proud of his daughter, who has started Gempro, a local jewellery valuation business. “It has been a life dream.” says Abby, who studied through The Gemological Association of Great Britain (GEM-A). “For a long time,

Taranaki people have had to send their jewellery away to be valued. This discouraged many to even bother about valuations. They didn’t want to send Nan’s ring away.” A registered nurse by trade, Abby juggles life with two young children alongside her fledgling business, but she says she is lucky to have her father as back-up. “After more than 50 years in the business his expertise is invaluable.”

WITH THIS WATCH According to the London global fashion shopping platform, Lyst, the latest trend in a Covid world, alongside luxury bridal face masks for brides, grooms and guests, are couple watches. The trend is predictably being amplified on social media.

“Face masks aren’t the only unexpected accessory of 2021; expect to see more fine watches and the rise of the “engagement watch”. Terms such as ‘couple’, ‘engagement’ and ‘wedding’ have started to appear more frequently over the past year, resulting in a

42% increase in searches for pieces including these terms,” Lyst says in its Wedding 2021 Report. “This season, more couples have been forgoing traditional rings as engagement presents, instead opting for gender-neutral watches.”

NEWS COLOURS OF COMMITMENT Thanks to a meeting between JWNZ members Helen Thompson-Carter, of Fabuleux Vous (FV) and Kerry Phillips at Country Jewel, Winton, with Melissa Vining, wife of the late Southlander, Blair Vining, the Southland Charity Hospital has launched a fund raising jewellery line in collaboration with FV and Country Jewel. Blair spent the last months of his life battling terminal bowel cancer and rallying New Zealanders to petition for a national cancer agency, but when he realised a national agency was not going to solve healthcare access issues in a timely way, he set plans in motion for a charity hospital to be founded to help those in Otago and Southland who could not get care in the public or private system. July 30th was Red Black White Casual Friday, the annual donations day for the Hospital and marked by the colours of Blair’s much-loved Midlands Rugby Club, which were designed into a rugby jersey for ‘Pack the Park’ in 2019 and 2020. Since then, the colours have been used as a tribute to Blair and his impact on Kiwis throughout New Zealand. “After talking to Melissa we created a small capsule of product to celebrate Blair and his passion for building a hospital - and most importantly to raise funds for the Hospital,” said Helen. “So, in our jewellery collection we did red, black and white rope bracelets with either the jersey or a rugby ball attachment, a rope keyring with either the jersey or rugby ball pendant and sterling silver charms and lapel pins, in either the rugby jersey or a white Christmas Lily - the lily is what Blair used to buy for Melissa and was his favourite flower. “FV has fully funded the project and donates money from the sale of every piece to the Hospital. Country Jewel has a window display and stock on hand, so we sell via their store or our online shop.” Melissa Vining says Helen designed pieces that captured the essence of Blair’s journey, the community spirit and his romantic side. “Helen and her team at Fabuleux Vous are inspirational and I feel so proud that our jewellery range is being supplied by a NZ company who share the same values as our community.”

NEWS CELEBRATING A VERY BIG BIRTHDAY July 2021 marked 90 years of family ownership for Knights the Jewellers in Kaitaia and Kerikeri, making it the oldest established retail store in Northland, still owned and operated by the same family. Knights was established in 1931 by Keith Knight and his wife Alice. Following Keith’s death in 1952, his oldest son John returned home to manage the business, eventually purchasing it. In 1986, youngest son Monty, who owned a music and home appliance store in Kaitaia, purchased the business. Today the company is co-owned by Monty and his daughter Adeline. To mark their 90th birthday Knights held a ‘win a .90ct diamond competition’. The local winner was Aleisha Gore, who had purchased an engagement and wedding band. “Aleisha’s initial reaction was total surprise, when she came into the shop to receive her prize. She was absolutely delighted,” said Monty. “We are yet to celebrate

ourselves, as we have been so very busy preparing, then running the birthday celebration promotion. Our team have really got behind the

celebration and we appreciate their extra efforts.” Monty now works most days in the Kaitaia store and one day a week in Kerikeri. But says it is his intention to reduce his hours over the next year or so. Monty: “Adeline has spent a lot of time getting the Kerikeri store running efficiently. She is on top of that now, plus she is supported very strongly with her store sales manager Kim Robertson. “Both my grandsons, who are college age, do some work at the Kerikeri store - will they be 4th generation owners? Time will tell.”

A CHANGE AT THE TOP Emma Hill, the daughter of the founder of jewellery chain Michael Hill International, has retired from the role of head of the company. Rob Fyfe, the former CEO of Air New Zealand, has been appointed the new chair. Emma served as the company’s board chair for the past six years, following her father, the chain’s namesake. She will remain on its board as a nonexecutive director. Emma worked for Michael Hill for more than 30 years and served as retail general manager of its expansion into Canada in 2002.

NEWS JEWELLERY INDUSTRY NETWORK LAUNCH In July the Jewellery Industry Network was launched as a new network for the jewellery industry. The Jewellery Industry Network (JIN) is a collaboration of existing businesses brought together with a central and common goal and objective to build stronger assets for all members of the Australasian jewellery industry. Laura Moore, from Moore Events Australia, Brett Low and Ewen Ryley from the Young Jewellers Group and Andy Phanthapangna

THE TALE OF THE ROLEX RIPPERS Police across the south of England are trying to identify a link between several robberies, where two young women are targeting elderly men at golf clubs to steal their expensive watches. The women, who have been dubbed the ‘Rolex Rippers’ by newspapers, are thought to have struck at least 14 times at clubs, as well as in town centres. Police at several forces are urging elderly men to take care, particularly while leaving their golf clubs wearing expensive timepieces. The Daily Telegraph reported that several of the thefts have been in car parks of exclusive golf clubs and most victims have been male pensioners. The women have often posed as charity workers with clipboards and have stolen watches using magician’s sleight of hand from their victims as they fill in paperwork. There have also been more violent incidents where expensive watches have been forcefully ripped from their owners’ wrists.

One hundred thirty-five years later, Tiffany & Co. is introducing ‘The Charles Tiffany Setting’, the jeweller’s first engagement ring for men. Based on a signet ring, it has a bold, metal-heavy look, with diamonds bezel-set in platinum or titanium. The ring is currently available with a round brilliant or emerald-cut diamond weighing up to five carats. The round brilliant diamond versions feature a knife-edge band inspired by the classic Tiffany Setting. The emerald-cut diamond versions have a bold, bevelled edge.

Showcase Jewellers Buying Group has generated a strong profit despite the uncertainty of the current economic climate, declaring a significant 20% return on members’ trading loan for the 2020-2021 financial year. Showcase Jewellers members have always reaped the rewards of a member owned business strategy particularly over the past two years, seeing a total $3 million return on their trading loan, that would ordinarily be retained by owners of competitor business models. The buying group was set to celebrate the milestone of 40 years in business at their second annual conference this August, but has postponed celebrations until the new year due to lockdown restrictions in Greater Sydney.

COUNTING THE COUNTERFEITED Rolex has been beaten to the top spot of the most counterfeited luxury brand on TikTok, but it isn’t far behind. Data found that Gucci came out in first place with 13.6m views under hashtags like #fakegucci, while Rolex came just behind with 11.7m views. Louis Vuitton in third place receiving 2m views and Dior in 4th place with 280k views. The data produced by money.co.uk follows a study by The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) which estimated that global trade for counterfeit brands is around £500bn.


BASEL IS BACK The MCH Group has relaunched Baselworld, a show that last ran in 2019, before the covid pandemic derailed its plans for 2020 and beyond. It will take place in 2022 from March 31 to April 4, which is the same week as Watches and Wonders Geneva, a show that runs from March 30 to April 5. Hour Universe, a brand created to replace

Baselworld, has been dropped altogether. Baselworld managing director Michel Loris-Melikoff says the new Baselworld show will be much less expensive for exhibitors and will offer the option of pre-packaged stands for watch, jewellery and gems businesses. He says that 80% of stakeholders

who were planning to participate in the cancelled 2020 Baselworld wanted it to be cheaper and less complicated. Mr Loris-Melikoff said that even smaller brands typically used to spend US$1 million on square metre space at Baselworld, designing, building and storing their own stands and running the booth for the week of the show.

Unstoppable Brilliance is composed of four reversible toggle necklaces rendered in 14ct gold vermeil with baguettecut diamonds and enamel accents.

The word Unstoppable is inscribed on one side of the circle, while the other side glitters with 12 diamonds set in ceramic enamel in a choice of four colours: white, black, pink, and orange.

NEWS THAT’S SHOW BUSINESS

A TRIBUTE TO PARIS

A selection of flamboyant 1970s jewels formerly in the collection of Sammy Davis Jr. stared in the Bonhams California Jewels in July. Singer, musician, dancer, actor, vaudevillian, and comedian, Sammy Davis Jr. (1925–1990) spent a lifetime in show business. Davis’s personal style was apparent from the start and he was rarely seen not wearing a suit and at least one large gold ring, exuding both elegance and flair. Five pieces were offered in the sale, including a Fancy Brown Diamond Ring that he was frequently photographed wearing while performing. Originally estimated at US$7,000-9,000, the ring garnered US$40,312.

Belgian designer, Marie Genon and Parisian atelier Bermudes have combined to create a ‘Scenography’ high jewellery collection, inspired by the world-famous Grand Palais, one of Paris’ most iconic monuments. Sammy Davis Jr. wearing the ring while performing.

HUMANITY PRESERVED IN A JEWEL

‘WE’, the new pendant by Vicenza company, Fair Line, is the result of a special project, which took shape over the difficult past year. The ‘Meaningful Object Project’, as it is called, is an inclusive initiative that

proves how values like globality, collaboration and connection can lead to uplifting and highly significant results. Designed in 14ct yellow gold but also available in 18ct, its spherical shape represents the globe with two different aspects: one side shows the real part of the world, made up of the planet’s surfaces and the various depths of its ocean waters, ably interpreted by semi-precious milky aquamarine. The other side, however, depicts hands clasped together, a symbol of solidarity between human beings.

BELONGING TO A PRINCESS An Art Deco bracelet, owned by Princess Margaret, is going under the hammer at the Dix Noonan Webb auction of ‘Jewellery, Watches and Objects of Vertu’ at its Mayfair saleroom in September. Comprising a double row of cultured pearls bordering a mille grain-set line of circular-cut diamonds to a diamond and pearl openwork geometric clasp, it dates from circa 1925. The bracelet, was sold by Christie’s at auction in 2006 and has an estimate of £30,000£40,000.

TIMEPIECE-INSPIRED Watchmaker Omega is wooing its watch fans with a unique sunglasses collection. In partnership with the Italian eyewear company Marcolin, the range has grown with 23 new styles for men and women, drawing on the brand’s famous timepiece designs for inspiration. The latest styles in the women’s range are deeply inspired by the Constellation timepiece line. The designs borrow familiar details such as the ‘claws’, which traditionally grip around the sides of the Constellation case, as well as the watch’s circular bezel, represented in the sunglasses by metal rings in the temples.

INSPIRED BY THE SEA Paris jeweller Delphine Nardin was once an archaeologist, which explains her passion for objects marked with the patina of time. In her “Empreintes” collection, the vestiges of the sea become decorative elements. On this silver and gold bracelet, the crab claw is ‘printed’ in silver. JT2021 SPRING

Unveiled at Watches & Wonders Geneva 2021, Louis Vuitton’s Tambour Carpe Diem was unlike anything else the French luxury goods house has done before. The skull on the dial is intriguing enough, but activate the minute repeater function that, along with the chiming of the time, you will be treated to a macabre display of the rattle snake wiggling its tail and head to tell the time and the skull’s jaw dropping open to reveal the words: ‘carpe diem’ in blood red script. And look for an hourglass, complete with sand, set into the dial should you want more reminders of your own mortality. Hermès also looked to death for the latest Métiers d’Art timepiece called Slim d’Hermès C’est la fête. The model features a stylish skeleton riding a horse, its showy mane waving in the wind. The Grim Reaper is especially dapper, wearing a top hat and a buttonedup double-breasted topcoat, complete with green silk cravat and tie pin, as he laughs at death astride his ghoulish skeleton horse. A rare ‘forgotten’ wristwatch belonging to Pablo Picasso, sold at auction for ¤219,050, nearly 20 times its presale estimate, at Bonhams debut Paris Luxury Watch Sale. The circa 1960 manual wind steel bracelet watch by independent Swiss watch producer Michael Z. Berger, is one of three known examples bearing the artist’s name on the silvered dial, with black letters forming the hour markers. The timepiece had been gifted by the artist to his friend and fellow creative, the late Greek sculptor Lela Kanellopoulou. 22 JT2021 SPRING


HYT, a watchmaker that displayed the time with tubes of coloured fluid, has shut down. HYT was unconventional within the Swiss watchmaking industry with its oversized domed watches showing the time using capillaries of coloured liquid. The groundbreaking company not only replaced hours’ hands with tubes, but also created mechanical movements capable of discharging enough electrical energy to light up LEDs on a dial. Investors appear to have drawn back at the constant investment into research and development as the pandemic slowed sales.

Arnold & Son (1764) has released a unique, day-and-night timepiece featuring the two distinct faces of New York, the city that never sleeps. The HM HSNY depicts the city via a vanishing-point projection of emblematic New York buildings, with the Manhattan Bridge sprawling across the East River in the background. The dial of the HM HSNY is a miniature painting just a few square centimetres in size. During the day, the bridge is displayed against a mother-of-pearl sky. At night, certain windows in the red-brick buildings, the street lights and Manhattan Bridge are illuminated by the addition of Super-LumiNova to the hand-painted scene, lighting up this nocturnal display on a 7.68mm rose gold case.

BOCCIA presents a smart NEW chronograph in inky midnight blue, An extremely rare Cartier Pebble ‘Turtle’ watch from the luxury house’s golden era in the 1960s, and offered for the first time at Bonhams Fine Watches Sale, sold for £225.250. A variant of the Cartier London Pebble, the Turtle earned its name from the unusual ‘turtle feet’ lugs surrounding its distinctive case, featuring a square with softened edges within a circle. Of the six exclusive large Pebbles produced - five in yellow gold, one in white gold with black dial - only one other is known to exist with the diminutive lugs and is currently in the Cartier Collection.

Jacob & Co has unveiled its first watch made in partnership with internationally renowned contemporary graffiti artist, Alec Monopoly. The Astronomia Alec Monopoly contains miniature pop characters and images that are staples of Monopoly’s artwork within the iconic Astronomia watch form. With its four-arm vertical movement and exclusive complications including a hand-lacquered globe of the earth rotating every 60 seconds and a double-axis tourbillon with the first rotation in 60 seconds and the second rotation in five minutes. The watch has four main sculptures on the dial: a Monopoly Man holding an ice cream cone with a melting pink dollar sign; an interpretation of Scrooge McDuck, holding a money bag with gold coins piled at his feet, Money Wings and a multicoloured dollar sign with multiple drawings of diamonds, dollar bills and the Jacob & Co. logo. Only nine of the watches are being made, with a retail price of US$600,000. London-based watchmaker William Wood is ‘hoping to set the world on fire’. The company’s mission is to honour the UK’s firefighters through timepieces that upcycle materials used by its brigades. Its fourth range, the Triumph Collection of Swiss-made chronographs, have dials designed to look like gauges from a fire engine dashboard. The flip side of the watches have a playful clear case back exposing a Sellita SW510 automatic chronograph movement with an oscillating weight in red with the William Wood logo. This is surrounded by a red circle with the famous fire alarm message ‘In case of fire break glass’. They are worn on straps made from upcycled British fire hose straps and every watch crown is forged from an original 1920’s British brass firefighter’s helmet.

A new TAG Heuer Connected with a Super Mario interactive watch face will encourage young wearers to keep moving, by becoming livelier and more animated the more the wearer is active. Animations are based on a familiar video game rewards system. ‘Mario’ wakes you up with a salute in the morning and as the day progresses and you rack up your step count, you unlock rewards at each stage of your daily target - 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% - a different animation plays out on the dial. These take the form of Super Mario’s famous objects: at 3 o’clock the Super Mushroom that makes Mario grow, at 6 o’clock the Pipe that allows him to travel fast and at 9 o’clock the Super Star that makes him invincible lights up. And when you reach 100% of your daily step count target, Mario climbs the Goal Pole. The biennial Only Watch charity auction returns on November 9, with 54 unique timepieces created by the world’s greatest watchmakers, submitted for sale. The auction is run by Christie’s and 99% of the money raised will go to scientific and medical research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy. F. P. Journe is donating a watch conceived over a dinner in 2012 at movie director Francis Ford Coppola’s house in the Napa Valley, where Francois Journe and Francis appear to have had a bizarre conversation about watch hands. “Francis asked me if it could be possible to tell time with a hand in a watch,“ said Francois. “How to display 12 hours with five fingers? It was not an easy matter and this complex challenge motivated me. Once I figured it out, Francis immediately sent the sketches for the fingers’ positions. After seven years of development, I am proud to present the FFC prototype.” The automatic Octa Calibre 1300 is powered solely by the Octa movement’s mainspring. The minutes are driven by a rotating disk located at 12 o’clock, while the mobile fingers appear or disappear instantaneously, indicating the hours by their position. The fingers were inspired by a mechanical hand created by Ambroise Paré (1509-1590), the father of modern surgery.

A magical landscape Van Cleef & Arpels’ design studio, gemstone division and workshop on Place Vendôme, Paris, worked to create Le Rocher aux Merveilles for about two years. This masterpiece was designed as a mineral sculpture in which each independent element lives in harmony with the ensemble: a fabulous landscape inhabited by fantastic flora and fauna. A 6.2kg steep mountain of lapis lazuli rises above a rugged base of blue quartz, accompanied by a forest of 32 tourmaline crystals totalling 2,171cts. Perching on crystals of tourmaline, a chimera spreads its wings in a majestic movement of white and yellow gold, accompanied by emeralds, rubies, coloured sapphires, garnets, cultured pearls and diamonds. Its head can be removed to adorn the white gold Chimere bracelet studded with garnets, sapphires and diamonds. Upon the rock, beneath the watchful gaze of the chimera, lies a treasure: the two-tone Nature ring made from white, yellow and rose gold with a 24.88ct emerald-cut tourmaline and, echoing its pink-green hues, emeralds, pink sapphires and diamonds. On the other side of the mountain, a unicorn and two fairies are resting among flowers by a waterfall of diamonds and sapphires. With wings set with mauve sapphires and diamonds, the fairy Ostara celebrates the arrival of spring as she holds aloft a bright orange spessartine garnet weighing 5.30cts.

Thanks to a special fastening, the graceful Ostara can be worn both as a brooch and as a pendant. The second fairy sits atop a refreshing waterfall formed of an openwork white gold mesh set with ‘drops’ of sapphires and diamonds. This exquisite jewel can be easily transformed into a brooch and a pair of earrings. Three Oleander flowers, which can be worn as brooches, bloom in a harmony of pink and purple colours. Vivid diamond petals contrast with their coloured sapphire counterparts, highlighting the brilliance of the centre stones: a 2.94ct Madagascan purple sapphire, a 2.45ct Mozambican ruby and a Sri Lankan blue sapphire weighing 2.60cts. The picture is completed by a white gold unicorn with a body that shines with round diamonds and a mane with pear drop diamonds. Made in the form of a miniature sculpture, it can be transformed into a brooch using a hidden mechanism: part of its side is removable, revealing a clasp that enables it to be worn.

STILE COLLECTION


Meet the designer … The London-based Thai jewellery designer Patcharavipa (Pat) Bodiratnangkura is one of the hottest names in the jewellery design scene. Her love of earthy organic lines and surprising material contrasts can be seen from her sleek boutique design, to the coconut shells in her fine jewellery. Patcharavipa studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design’s art foundation programme in London and then embarked on her jewellery design training at Central Saint Martins. She is also a certified gemologist from the Graduate Diamonds Programme of the Gemmology Institute of America (GIA) and the Coloured Stones Programme at the Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences in Bangkok. In 2016, she launched her eponymous brand, with her atelier based in Bangkok. Patcharavipa started off the year with a new collection titled Clues Sepper S/S2021, a portmanteau for salt and pepper. The collection created Jewellery designer Patcharavipa Bodiratnangkura. during lockdown, presents a series of black, grey, white and salt and pepper diamonds. The brand produces one main collection a year, with a special high jewellery or couture Patcharavipa Clues Sepper rose cut collection alongside it. diamond cage ring. Can you give us some background into your journey before launching your brand? I was always obsessed with the world of art and design. When I was 13, I started a costume jewellery brand, All That Glitters, but I was young and didn’t make it a serious business. How would you describe your brand? My brand is tactile and bold in design and aesthetics. Our pieces are made all in house. I like to create unique silhouettes on the body that can transition from the day to the evening. How do you choose what gemstones to work with? This depends on the mood of the collection and the gold or metal I’m working with. Our ‘ready to wear’

collections are set with diamonds for a more neutral and clean look. For the couture collection, I used padparadscha sapphire, paraiba tourmaline and Thai yellow sapphire. Why did you start working with coconut shells? The coconut shells are recycled, organically sourced and I was drawn to their feminine shape and form. I’ve always wanted to explore ideas outside something wearable. I decided to set gemstones and materials nestled inside the shells to play with the concept that precious things should always be hidden, like the heart inside our bodies. Your latest collection Clues Sepper was created during the Covid-19 pandemic. How did this affect your creative process? Being locked down at home in London, I felt like wearing something casual and practical, every time I went to the groceries, I didn’t want to wear anything too sparkly. The design came to serve the right purpose as the collection was simple, practical and for everyday-wear. It’s a collection you can sleep in or shower in! What is your favourite jewel you’ve designed? I’m particularly fond of my ring designs. I like how all of them can be stacked on top of each other.

Pick a bloom, any bloom If picking a flower in Spring is an instinctive gesture, then wearing a jewellery item that matches its profile is an absolute must that never goes out of fashion. But part of the beauty of a flower is its ephemeral nature, the moment you pick it, it’s dying, it doesn’t last forever. Jewellery designers, however, can create a link between the permanence of jewellery and the intrinsic impermanence of nature. Thanks to their skill in the craftmanship of innovative and traditional materials, the future of fine flower-themed jewellery and timepieces is full of exciting new possibilities…

“I designed and handcrafted the Peony Rose Ring as a one-of-a kind ring for a customer. She absolutely loved Peony roses, as well as pink tourmaline. Because of the softness of tourmaline, I designed the petals to protect the stone. I hand carved the ring in wax to give each petal subtle movement and form. This ring represents both her engagement and wedding ring in one. “I also made her husband’s ring. He wanted a skull and crossbones ring to represent the ‘Till death do us part’ idea. I suggested crossed roses instead of the crossed bones, to tie in with the theme of his wife’s ring.” Steph Lusted, Steph Lusted Jewellery & Objets d’Art, Wellington.

A passion for watches Designa Accessories is one of Australasia’s major watch and jewellery distributors, its distinctive portfolio including prestigious Australian, as well as iconic international brands.

Les and Lyn Veil, company gathering.

Designa Accessories at the Darling Harbour Gift Fair, mid 1980s.

But how is DA different from its competitors? It’s worth a climb back into the archives to find out. Designa Accessories was the most organic of creations: a husband, a wife, a chance meeting in Hong Kong, and the garage of one of those classic suburban white brick and red tile houses with a garage converted into a warehouse, a trading post. It might be difficult to imagine, now, but in the mid-eighties, if you wanted a watch you were limited for choice: you could buy Japanese or you could mortgage the house for high-end Swiss. Lyn Veil was in the sunglass game.

Manufacture in Hong Kong, bring to Australia and sell at the markets. It did well enough, but providence would bring Lyn into contact with Mickey Callanen, who had started GUESS Watches, a spin-off of the American clothing brand, which had first drawn breath in 1981. These watches were unlike anything the market had seen, at least in Australia. A new category was born, fashion watches. Timepieces as jewellery, as art; more a fashion accessory than a watch. Mickey asked Lyn, “Can you sell fashion watches?” Lyn, who knew she was capable of anything, even if she’d only ever

been in the sunglass game, told Mickey she could. Of course she could. In 1984, Designa Accessories became the first international distributor of any GUESS product outside the USA, including clothes. Soon, GUESS Watches, supported by iconic branding featuring Claudia Schiffer and Anna Nicole Smith, were filling department stores around Australia, quickly becoming the number one fashion watch brand in the country. By now, Lyn’s husband Les had joined the company, his strategy of going straight to a store’s salesperson to convince them of the brand’s

brilliance was at least partially responsible for its stratospheric popularity. When GUESS clothing eventually made it to Australia, customers thought it was a watch business that had suddenly branched out into cutoff denim shorts and t-shirts. Designa Accessories grew the fashion watch category with timepieces for Jag, for Mambo, for Fiorelli, for Industrie. In 1999, Maxum was created as the ultimate affordable action sports watch, combining form, function and fashion and engineered with either 100m or 200m water resistance. A redesign in 2021 has given the muchloved brand even more credibility among outdoor enthusiasts. In 2000, Designa Accessories relaunched the iconic American brand Timex in Australia, shifting the under-appreciated watches out of chemists and into department stores

and jewellers. Over the course of the last 21 years, the company has grown in profitability and as a cultural entity under the stewardship of, first, Les and Lyn’s son, Justin and for the last eight years, with General Manager Ivan Meys, whose ability to make good judgements and take quick decisions, is well known in the watch business. Today, and in its 35th year, Designa Accessories sells to a network of more than 1000 retail outlets in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Designa Accessories currently holds the licenses for GUESS Watches and Jewellery, Gc, TIMEX, Maxum, Rosefield, Fendi Timepieces, Missguided and August Berg, and is proud to service the New Zealand market with a dedicated team to support sales and the presentation of their brands with retail partners. Because it’s a privately-owned family business that focuses on the long-term, rather than short term spikes in profits for shareholders, Designa Accessories holds the values of loyalty, teamwork and customer service above all. Everything Designa Accessories does comes from a passion for watches; for making people feel good about themselves. Designa Accessories, therefore, exists not just as an ambition but as an ideal.

JWNZ PRESIDENT’S REPORT This will be my last report as President of JWNZ, as my term ends at the next AGM which is to be held on Saturday 11th September 2021. The standard term for the position of President is two years. Due to the circumstances of the global pandemic and the fact that the whole country was in a state of limbo, I have served for three years; it was easier to maintain the status quo until we were able to have a physical meeting. By the time we meet for the 2021 AGM and Trade Fair, it is hoped that most of us will be fully vaccinated, thereby putting us in the fortunate position of being able to safely hold a large gathering. Members will now be able to meet, discuss and vote for their preferred President in a safe environment. I look forward to seeing and meeting as many of you as possible. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as President, and I thank all committee members for their support and hard work during my term of office. Members may have felt a little abandoned and isolated during the lockdown and the following months, but the JWNZ committee has been active in the background. Our means of communication is the JT magazine and if you read it

you would have been able to follow what has been happening. One of the major achievements has been to enable the Trade Fair this year. Major suppliers have keenly come on board largely due to the hard work and effort put in by Debbie Whiting. Membership Our membership uptake has been excellent this year, with the majority of members paying promptly. The new certificates are being dispatched as I write this report and you will have received them before the magazine is printed. What is the future of JWNZ? You will be sent an email with a survey regarding the future of the JWNZ. Please take the time to air your views and have your thoughts heard. This is your organisation and the committee is there to represent you. This can only be done with your input. ASEAN In my role as President, I was very privileged to represent the jewellery trade at two ASEAN Gems & Jewellery Association Conferences. The first was held in Shanghai in 2018, where I was accompanied by Roland Plank and the second was

in Istanbul, accompanied by Craig Anderson. Particularly noticeable was the friendship and mutual respect shown at these conferences. Presentations covered a wide variety of topics which then led to extensive discussions among the attendees. It became clear to me that the New Zealand jewellery trade has a significant role to play and will benefit in the years to come from being part of the ASEAN community. A third Conference scheduled for March 2020 in Hong Kong was abandoned at the 11th hour due to the Covid-19 outbreak and only time will tell if and when it can be re-scheduled. The 37th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show was, however, held recently. Travel restrictions had prevented most overseas buyers from attending, so it was opened to the general public for the first time. It was reported that about a third of the consumers visiting that show and another in Hong Kong spent over HK$10,000 per head on-site. The prospects for the jewellery trade seem promising! - Brian Barrett, JWNZ President Tel: 04 476 4764, 021 661 060, brian@bhbdesigns.co.nz

It’s encouraging to report that most goldsmiths are very busy at the moment. Some businesses report that they are struggling to get the skilled workers they need and, of course, this is not unique to the jewellery trade. Recent media reports are in line with what I have heard from many other tradespeople recently, mainly those in the building industry. Having a pool of workers with the necessary skills is a long-term strategy, but there is certainly no quick fix. In my 60 years in this trade, I have experienced a number of boom times and a number of quiet times, so I well know the difficulty in balancing having the right number of skilled workers 48 JT2021 SPRING

with the work in hand. Apprentice training is also costly; but it could be viewed as a form of insurance. Sound practices are taught and handed down, rather than being learned from a book. The skills required to be a top-class goldsmith take many years - far longer than the apprenticeship period - so the time to train people is now. Supply problems also affect most sectors. Commerce has slowed right down because of the global pandemic and the jewellery industry is no exception. The delays encompass the problem with mines not being able to operate to full capacity and filter right down to include much slower delivery times.

Given the growing interest in jewellery apprenticeships, I feel sure that a good discussion would be of benefit to those mainly younger people, as well as to those of us who have been in the trade for many years. The Goldsmiths Guild AGM is an ideal time to have these discussions. It is to be held on Friday, 17th September 2021, in Wellington. The time and venue will be advised by email to Goldsmiths Guild members.

JWNZ TRADE FAIR

JWNZ MEMBERSHIP

Early in 2021 the Jewellers & Watchmakers of New Zealand Executive and Trade Fair Committee agreed to holding the JWNZ Spring Trade Fair 2021 at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, Westhaven, Auckland on Sunday 12 September. Whilst it was a smaller venue, we were looking to provide a new style of fair. Within three days the available exhibition space was sold out and a waiting list of exhibitors established. Being well aware of the impact the return of Covid-19 may have, we are pleased to advise that while three of our Australian exhibitors are now unable to attend, we were able to replace them with those from the waiting list. In all, 34 exhibitors will be on show offering more than 70 different brands. An invitation was sent out to members and industry participants to register as a visitor for the event and to date the response has been fantastic and the number of attendees registering is expected to grow over the next few weeks.

The JWNZ Executive and National Council wishes to thank all of our members who have continued their support of the organisation through your financial membership. The opportunity to pay the membership subscription by instalment, to help with your budgeting, has been taken up by a few members. The JWNZ continues to receive membership enquiries which has resulted in nine new members since May. Overall, the JWNZ has a relatively static membership.

JWNZ MEMBER SURVEY JWNZ members will receive a ‘Members Matter’ Survey. We hope that you will take the time to complete it, as it is an important part of determining the future look of the JWNZ.

WATCHMAKERS’ INSTITUTE OF NEW ZEALAND After last year’s Zoom Annual General Meeting the members of the New Zealand Horological Institute were ready for a ‘live’ occasion this year. Fifty watchmakers made their way to Rotorua to take part. The weekend started with the annual auction where plenty of goodies were up for grabs. Rowan Pilbrow and I gave a presentation on a couple of recent additions to our watch case refinishing arsenal, in the form of a lapping machine and horizontal linisher. On the Saturday morning Rowan stood down from his role as President and I would like to thank Rowan for all of his hard work for the last six years. Philip Green was subsequently voted in as the new President. I am sure he will continue with the same enthusiasm that Rowan brought to the position. After the meeting Terry Sutcliffe, horological historian, gave a

fascinating presentation on the history of Seiko in New Zealand. Saturday ended with the remainder of the auction, followed by dinner at the hotel. The NZHI has once again started running courses at the training facility in Whangaparaoa, with the first of the four planned for this year held on August 7. The course, run by Tim Smith from Milford Watch & Clock Repair, Theron Greasley from The Clock Clinic and Colin Hollingsworth from Precision Watch Repair was a beginner course on clocks and attended by four apprentices and two watchmakers keen to brush up on their skills. The next training course on watch case and bracelet refinishing will be run by Rowan Pilbrow, from Pilbrows Watchmakers, on Saturday 25 September. Those who are interested should contact me for

JEWELLERY INDUSTRY REGISTRATION BOARD Great that the JWNZ Trade Fair is going ahead. Congratulations to the organisers who have committed to putting this on and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to being able to intermingle with others in the trade. Given that it has been a limited year for interactions, Grant Harrison was able to organise to travel and meet with apprentices and employers he had not been able to meet with. (Pictured). There are still some Grant has yet to meet, but will aim to do so by the end of the year. It is just great to see so many manufacturing jewellers and watch and clockmakers ranging from the Far North to Invercargill in the South, committing to take an apprentice on or supporting in some way, like our banner sponsors below. This all helps to stabilise the learning and employment journey that industry needs to keep training New Zealanders for a healthy base in Aotearoa. Many of these are ‘at the coal face’ small businesses that when Grant has inquired, are doing really well and again this is great to see. Formal notices; Firstly; 2021
