"Nostalgem is Rina Ward - Jewellery Artist. Nature Scavenger. Beachcomber. I collect pieces of flora and fauna (most often native to New Zealand) and I create them into one-of-a-kind jewellery. Native seashells, fishbones, beach sand, leaves, petals and pods . These are the precious gems of my unpretentious yet meaningful jewellery line. These organic treasures reflect personal stories that are special to the wearer as they represent something unique about themselves, their family, and their values. They also celebrate the distinctive beauty found only in this beautiful country of Aotearoa New Zealand.
There were countless of these sun-bleached dead cockle shells scattered along the shores here in the Bay of Islands. I just had to gather a handful.
I made a trio of them dangling from sterling silver hooks. Creatures like cockles, tuangi and pipi resiliently thrive in the surf zone, these earrings symbolises the strength to endure life's challenges amidst its highs and lows... and of course it’s also a timeless reminder of sunny shores and joyful summers!"
