I always visit Marie's gallery when I'm in Old Cromwell. It's an imbecilely laid out shop nestled in the Heritage Precinct. Marie is thoughtful and exact in her presentation of her work. I'd recommend asking about the inspiration behind some of the pieces. Her jewellery...More

Came here on a tour of South Island tourism spots. Loved Marie's individual style and warm personality. Bought some beautiful earrings. Great wee spot to visit - my favourite in the Heritage Precinct.

Marie has an amazing talent for creating beautiful pieces that express themselves in the most unique and thought provoking way. Her story telling transcends across the entire range of products and is then enveloped with excellent packaging that further enhances the specialness of her creations.

Lovely original pieces of jewellery, something different to anything i've seen in my travels. Interesting crafted china and wire creations well done, more talent in Cromwell.

Marie's studio makes. Stop in otherwise unremarkable Cromwell, well worth your time. Marie's studio is a magical little place where each piece is more exquisite than the next. Delicate, filigreed, whimsical jewelry and art pieces designed by a really lovely artist.
