Juliet Ramson

Juliet Ramson started Found Jewellery in 2011 after completion of her design degree in Industrial Design. Having worked in the commercial furniture and lighting industries she decided to launch out on her own creating a brand and business to pursue her design passion. "I kind of fell into jewellery after making a few pieces for myself in the back shed. I guess I have social media to thank for that as I put them online and interest came to my surprise. I then developed a strong brand and rode the wave that is Found Jewellery."

Now based in Juliet's home town of Rotorua, Juliet creates contemporary collections of jewellery in precious and recycled materials. "I enjoy mixing traditional processes and materials with contemporary manufacturing. It's like the best of both worlds and means we retain our hand crafted and NZ made values which are so key".
