My love affair with jewellery began as a teenager where I worked for Noel Herd, a local Blenheim jeweller. Playing in the workshop during my lunch breaks, then being asked to help in the workshop, cemented in a passion for the creative process of jewellery making.
After some travel, marrying my husband Nigel and having our two boys, Archie and Charlie, I returned to my creative hobby and started GMW Jewellery just doing small repairs for friends and making jewellery to sell at local markets.
Fast forward 10 years and GMW Jewellery Limited has grown into a business I am immensely proud of. I still love my job and going to work everyday is something I look forward to with enthusiasm.
