Denise inheritaded a box of porcelain, clay and terracotta beads around 2014 from a friend in Raglan, New Zealand. His mother used to do jewellery in the 80ies. When they cleaned out his mother's house, he found a box full of leftover materials for jewellery making. Denise just started to experiment with jewellery making at that time, mainly with dryclay and resin. When he saw the box and her creations at the time he thought of gving it to Denise before leaving it to the bin.

The box was a mix of raw beads and coloured ones. His mother made very colourful chains with many beads in one piece. It took a while for Denise to discover a design that suits her art. She almost gave the box back and only kept it because her friend said he would just throw it away! Luckily she gave it another go! 

She just took one piece and tried to draw on it, she combined it with natural materials like silver and leather. Since then she has sold many pieces around the world but an end of the material will come. It's only known that his mother ordered them from Italy back in the days. Knowing that makes each peice even more special and unique! 

Hand drawn on upcycled clay bead. Several layers of gloss for clay is hand brushed on each piece to make the artwork long lasting. All jewellery are one of a kind pieces, original atworks and signed on the back!

Many many more have been created in that time. Many sold while I made them or on the same day since I was working on this collection in my studio and gallery space in Raglan, New Zealand. People could just walk in and watch me working on my artwork.
