Henare is a jewellery label based in Rotorua, New Zealand. Its founder, Nerida Johnstone formally trained in sculpture, working extensively in lost wax casting before forging Henare into the modern, edgy adornment brand it is today.
There is a raw, eclectic edge to the hand made range. Natures most precious gifts in the form of stone, crystals, gems, bone and leather are fused with metals to form one of a kind, limited edition pieces enabling the wearer to connect and to be empowered by nature in their everyday life.
Henare jewellery celebrates the act of giving, each piece a unique talisman to embody and signify an enduring gesture of love, remembrance or occasion, much like the traditions of trench, momento and vintage sweetheart jewellery.
Henare jewellery is a merging of nature’s gifts and life's memories and is lovingly handmade.
