The Golden Kiwi's Story

When designing The Golden Kiwi we wanted to create a piece that connected to a love for our beautiful country and that provided a timeless piece of jewellery that could be worn anytime, anywhere. A perfect marrying of our Nordic influenced style and our roots in Kiwi culture. Our hope is that The Golden Kiwi reflects Jens’ own interest in creating jewellery that has a dialogue between it and the influences of New Zealand’s natural environment. This is what led us to design a form that is distinctively organic, free from sharp edges or abrupt divisions, and developed from and beyond the iconic shape of a kiwi bird that is collectively known, as it is intrinsic to our upbringing in New Zealand. By slightly abstracting the form of the pendant from that of an exact depiction of a kiwi, we created a piece that is timeless but still imbued with the essence of the national icon and its natural home. We hope that the final design conveys this intention, and that it is worn with pride by everyone who loves our country, New Zealand.
