Adrian Waddell - Owner/Jeweller

From an after school job in Invercargill Adrian was offered a jewellery apprenticeship. After qualifying he decided to travel the world and learn as much as he could about the new ideas and techniques in the jewellery industry.

First off was Perth, Western Australia for four years then Broome further up the coast where he worked for another four years for the second largest pearl producers in Australia. Seven years was then spent in Birmingham, United Kingdom at the famous Jewellery Quarter.

After 15 years away, it was time to return home and open his own business. Since Ashburton didn't have a manufacturing jewellery store, it was the perfect place to set up - opening in late 2004.
