Vanessa Arthur is a jeweller based in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Her work is often influenced by memories formed during daily travels; imperfect and impermanent objects, fragments and facades. 

In the workshop, while cutting, hammering, constructing, she picture’s her jewellery inhabiting these explored streetscapes – a drifting trove waiting to be discovered, treasured and worn.

Vanessa is currently a participant in Handshake 2, a project pairing 13 emerging New Zealand jewellers with their chosen mentor. Australian jeweller David Neale will mentor Vanessa over a two year period, with project updates and outcomes documented at handshake2.com
