"Ko Whanokau te Maunga, Ko Motu te Awa, Ko Apanui te Tangata, Ko Te Whanau a-Apanui te Iwi.


Tena koe I grew up in Kawerau in the North Island of New Zealand and like many across Aotearoa am of mixed Maori and European ancestry. After doing a couple of OE's and living in various cities across New Zealand, my wife and I finally returned to my Te Whanau a-Apanui homeland and it is from here we run our thriving pounamu jewellery business.


Working with sacred stones like Pounamu, Pakohe, Onewa and Tangiwai is a hugely satisfying occupation:  starting with a raw block of stone and cutting, grinding and shaping that stone to produce an art form that is aesthetically pleasing to both the eye and touch. The Maori craftsmanship seen in pre-European stone artefacts is an on-going inspiration for me and with this in mind I continually strive to honour the Maori blood running in my veins. Through my working of stone I see myself as continuing a tradition in my culture that extends back hundreds of years.


I believe there is mauri and energy in all stone and creating art forms that in many instances will become family taonga or heirlooms is a humbling and extremely rewarding experience. Tena ra koe ano Dean."
