WHICH GODDESS ARE YOU?
THE ESSENCE OF ATHENA
Athena is the legendary Greek goddess of wisdom and courage. These extraordinary collections not only embody her strength, grace, and timeless beauty but also serve as a form of protective armour for the wearer. Just as Athena herself was revered for her strategic prowess and unwavering resilience, this jewellery exudes a sense of regality and empowerment. We merge classical elegance with contemporary sophistication, creating pieces that both complement and fortify the individual who wears them. Allow the divine allure of these pieces to enhance your inner strength and inspire you to navigate the world with unwavering confidence.
THE ESSENCE OF IRIS
Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow and messenger of the gods, inspired these divine collections. According to mythology, Iris utilised the rainbow as her celestial pathway to travel between Earth and heaven. Immerse yourself in a realm of jewellery that effortlessly blends captivating colours, symbolic amulets, and timeless elegance, and allow it to guide you on your own personal journey. Whether for yourself or as a meaningful gift, these collections under the essence of Iris are a celebration of individuality, love, and the beauty found in every moment.
XIMENA FERRE. THIS IS WHY
Never very good at following conventions, I built Ximena Ferre for those searching for something different because I believe jewellery should be unique and personal to its wearer, and also, made to last. Each piece is sustainably hand-constructed in my Auckland studio.
•|• 'As someone who enjoys discovering and supporting artists, and who values personalised, unique and beautiful objects, it has been truly rewarding to have a bespoke piece of jewellery handcrafted with a beautiful Greenstone (a precious "Taonga" in New Zealand), by Ximena Ferre. Not only is this necklace fully hand detailed, with character in every chain link, the design is one that can be worn casually during the weekend or for more special occasions. Versatile, special, and a one off piece that is all the more special for having known Ximena and seen her develop as an artist and creator of beautiful things over many years.'

•|• 'I bought a couple of pairs of earrings from Ximena. They were thoughtfully crafted, unique and well-made. I’m not one for mass produced jewellery - and as I’m not a millionaire either...don’t own a lot of jewellery! What I do own are pieces that I’ve been fortunate enough to have been gifted, or acquired during my travels- mostly handmade, or pieces made by local artisans. Ximena is a talented creative, and takes an immense amount of pride in her work - in each and every single piece she crafts. We have many talented jewellers in NZ, and Ximena is certainly one of them!'
