LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WEAR BORING JEWELRY
"I make a lot of engagement and wedding rings, which I like as I feel honored to be asked to make pieces that mean so much to someone. Jewellery can carry a lot of sentimental value and I've had the privilege to work with clients on some really special pieces, from turning old estate pieces into new, contemporary items to making special silver token boxes to hold locks of hair or a baby's first tooth."
Matt has made numerous pieces for well-known national and international people. Bono from U2 came in and bought several pieces. Bill Clinton bought an arm-band with greenstone for his daughter Chelsea and Greg Johnson and other New Zealand musicians and actors have bought pieces from Bijoux.
I'm drawn to jewellery styles from throughout the world and i admire the craftsmanship that has gone into antique pieces.
"Those vintage pieces required fine, detailed work, which takes time and precision, as well as years of experience to create".
