About the Showroom

The Steph Lusted Jewellery and Objets d'Art Showroom/Gallery + Workshop opened in 2015 and is located in central Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. Steph Lusted Jewellery is sold exclusively through this gallery which aims to showcase high quality, unique pieces of adornment and small scale sculpture. Throughout the year the Showroom/Gallery is host to solo exhibitions and displays of Steph Lusted’s own work, as well as the work of other artists in curated group shows

The Showroom is also second home to the infamous Beowulf (Wolfy to friends) the sphynx cat who can often be found sitting amongst the objects in the display window, peering at customers from above, or of course snoozing the day away…

My Favourite Piece: Japanese Anemone Brooch

The Japanese Anemone Brooch is a recent work of mine and it is hard not to feel emotionally connected to it. It is actually the largest brooch I have ever made.
I am passionate about jewellery that makes a strong visual impact and this piece certainly does that due to its size, materials and execution. Like many of my Collector Sets, this piece comes together with a custom display cabinet. The idea is that this brooch can be displayed and appreciated visually as a work of art, also allowing the piece to be taken out and worn when desired.

Over the 20+ years of being a jeweller and object maker I find great satisfaction in combining a range of specialised techniques that I have developed over years of dedication to my craft. The Japanese Anemone Brooch combines my passion of carving organic materials and combining them with age old goldsmithing techniques as well as new techniques which I have developed myself through experimentation and thought.
