Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Alison Blain

Alison Blain of Tauranga is celebrated as one of New Zealand’s most beloved jewellers. Renowned for her timeless, feminine, and sophisticated designs, Alison employs custom-cut gemstones, blending her passion for colour with traditional craftsmanship. Her artistry shines through in the way she skillfully uses texture to enhance the natural beauty of stones and precious metals. Alison’s unique approach extends to photographing her creations with flowers and plants as a botanical backdrop, earning her respect not only among photographers but also from admirers of her jewellery. The allure of her gold and silver pieces is evident in their high demand, and they find a coveted place in private collections both in New Zealand and overseas.
