"Ten months have past and I am looking at the most beautiful bracelet I wear each day which Amanda has made for me after viewing a similar bracelet in her gallery of customised jewellery. Amanda is a very special and caring person with wonderful artistic talents. She cares so much about each and every piece she makes and also cares about the client she is working for endeavouring to achieve a wonderful piece that they will love as much as she has enjoyed making it. Amanda has fantastic commitment to her work making sure that she is seeing to her clients wishes and keeps in constant communication with every step of the process making sure she is making the correct piece that her client really wants. Her commitment to her work is fantastic and she is such a busy lady. I highly recommend her work and I am sure she will not disappoint. I would be more than happy to purchase more of her work in the future. Thank you soooo very much Amanda." - Kerry, Invercargill, NZ (May 2010)
"I enquired from Amanda if she could make over a bracelet for me which wasn't wearing well. It had been given to me by my partner so it had strong sentimental value as it was the first piece of jewellery he ever gave me. Well what an amazing job was done. The piece has now ended up as 2 pieces - 1 x bracelet and 1 x lariat. Both beautifully done and on my first day of wear, both pieces got lots of comments. I just love them and even feel quite sentimental about what has been done. Amanda was consultative through the whole process and came up with great ideas. I highly recommend her work to you - customer service and satisfaction is just top notch!! Keep up the great work." - Julie, Auckland, NZ (August 2009)
"My bracelet arrived today, what a lovely surprise to come home to. I am absolutely thrilled with it, the fit is great, and as you said before, the photos donít do it justice. Thanks so much, I shall really treasure this one." - Glenis, Wellington, NZ (July 2009)
"The bag arrived yesterday - I love it! So comfortable to use - the strap fits beautifully over my shoulder and stays there, it doesn't slip off. The best part - I can see everything in my handbag. Thank you so much!"

'When my niece in Holland was 7 yrs old (37 yrs ago) and did her first communion, we had chosen a bracelet with natural NZ stones on a linked setting. She adored this bracelet and great was her sadness when some years later this bracelet was taken in a burglary. When I found out how upset she was I went searching for a replacement bracelet. For years I looked in all sorts of places but never found one even remotely similar.
Later this year we are making a trip back to Holland again and I resumed my search in the hope to be able to surprise my niece, who is a very special woman. I posted on the TM message board and asked a few questions in the craft section. Amanda got in touch with me and send me some pictures of what looked like the bracelet without the stones. I was delighted. I now only had to go looking for similar stones and Amanda kindly had offered to glue the stones onto the bracelet with a special glue.
I found some gems and posted them to Amanda who managed to purchase another bracelet for me and we selected the most suitable stones. Amanda very skillfully glued the gems in place and the result is stunning. (Note: CLICK HERE to see the finished bracelets)
In a matter of weeks, thanks to Amanda's skill and helpfulness, suggestions and advice, we succeeded in recreating the gift for my niece. Today the completed product arrived in the mail. The packaging was beautiful, I could tell Amanda loves her work, her presentation was stunning, from the bubble wrap to the gorgeous black box with a cute pink bow and each bracelet carefully wrapped in silver tissue. I know my neice will be delighted. I can't wait to see her face when she opens it.
I highly recommend Amanda's work. Her prices are reasonable, her friendliness, skill, insight, and joy in her creations is obvious.
Thank you Amanda I wish you all the best and will certainly keep a careful eye on your website for future purchase."
