Hi, my name is Julia!
JHD (Julia Huyser Design) was established in 2009. I've spent the last 10 years building the JHD collection, working in my garage or on my dining table while sleep-deprived, and changing babies nappies, looking after growing kids, working weekend markets and getting my name out there. It's been a slow and rewarding process, growing from strength to strength. Not much has really changed 10 years on, except I have a new studio now, and I've given up weekend markets to have more time with my kids. I mainly sell online and to shops all over New Zealand. You may also catch me at the odd outdoor summer fair in Wellington.
My jewellery is designed and made right here in our beautiful country of New Zealand, from ethically sourced Rimu, hand painted and finished with quality metals. I love my work. I love designing, and I love creating wearable art.
When I am not working, I am spending time with my family, throwing some clay on the wheel, or doing bushwalks. I have 2 daughters Lola & Rose who keep me very busy. I am based in the beautiful Wellington suburb of Pukerua Bay.
Thankyou for visiting me today. Hopefully you'll find a special treat to call your own today.
