The Picual olive collection was born on a glorious sunny afternoon; supping wine and dancing barefoot to live music among the olive trees at Rangihoua Olive Estate on Waiheke Island.
The next morning I found I had pockets full of olive leaves that my two young daughters had collected and stashed away. Together we curled the leaves into different designs, and glued them together to form bangles, necklaces and rings.
The girls' pieces were so lovely that I wondered if I could translate that same organic beauty into silver and gold.
So began the meticulous process of trial and error to cast the leaves into metal while still capturing the detail of the leaf's delicate structure yet also making something bright and shiny.
The end result was several leaves of varying shapes and sizes which are textured on the inside to show the grain and polished to a high shine on the reverse. These leaves have been carefully manipulated into different forms and some soldered to others to create this beautiful eye-catching olive leaf collection.
