Alice Herald has always been inspired by spectacular lakes, skies and mountains of her hometown of Wanaka. However, this range was inspired by a hummingbird in flight. Herald was drawn to the bird being weightless in motion and how the hummingbird embodies a delicate beauty this is intimately recreated in her new capsule collection.
Each piece is carefully crafted made with precious metals and gemstones with the vibrancy and grace of the hummingbird in mind. They are all drawn by hand, made to order and overseen by Herald to ensure quality. “I’m really inspired by potential: of my designs, of the gemstones, and how I can affect the wearer and their emotions,” she added.
