Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Alison Blain

Tauranga’s Alison Blain is recognized as one of New Zealand’s best-loved jewellers. Her designs are timeless, feminine and sophisticated. Using custom-cut gemstones, she combines her passion for colour with traditional craftsmanship. Alison skilfully uses her love of texture to enhance the natural beauty of stones and precious metals.  She photographs her work with flowers and plants as a botanical backdrop – an approach that has won her respect among photographers, as well as those who love her jewellery. Her gold and silver jewellery is highly sought after, and held in private collections in New Zealand and overseas.
