Tracy Watson

Tracy studied jewellery at Manukau Institute of Technology, She often draws her inspiration from her local natural surroundings, the Auckland Waitakere Ranges and surrounding West Coast beaches.

Tracy elaborates, I often start by photographing things that interest me while walking, then work from these visual notes to transform the elements into wearable pieces that embody and communicate the unique beauty of the area.

Recently my concern for the magnificent kauri tree has led me to making it a focal point in my design.
