In the early 1980’s jewellery designer Jeannette Lewis recognized the need for a high quality range of Australian made wearable art intended for visitors to Australia.
Wandjina Jewellery is meticulously hand finished, ensuring the highest possible standard in Craftmanship.
All pieces are sold in their own designer packaging.
Made in Kuranda - a little rainforest village near Cairns in
Far North Queensland
The original designs were meticulously hand engraved by Jeannette over a two year period.
The resulting Australian Collection was unveiled to critical acclaim in 1985 in Darwin.
The range in Sterling Silver and Karat gold consists of Australian Animals, Birds and Jeannette’s interpretation of ancient Aboriginal Legends and stories.
The Range is available as earrings, pendants, neck pieces, brooches, pins, rings and bracelets.
Jeannette also designed her Magik Collection in Darwin which depicts Legends and stories from Egyptian and Mayan cultures as well as esoteric pieces of her own designs.
These wonderful pieces are still being produced using the lost wax casting method almost a quarter of a century later by multi talented French-Australian Artist Designer Didi La Baÿsse from her studio and gallery in Kuranda, North Queensland, Australia.
Didi hand finishes each piece to an exacting standard maintaining the elegance and beauty of these timeless Collections.
