My name is Maree Grant, a part time silversmith. I have been working with silver for five years, but have been making art, in some shape or form all my life. My inspiration for my jewellery comes from the beautiful land, fauna and flora of the South Island. I also have a passion for traditional Japanese Kanzashi hair ornaments. Their movement of line and strong links to nature captivate me. On my travels, I am constantly looking for interesting shapes and textures within nature to create unique silver jewellery of heirloom quality.
