A more detailed or relevant portfolio can also be emailed on request for galleries. (details available on:  Galleries & Contact page)

Each jewellery Carlson creates is a unique piece, handmade in her Devonport studio. The Greenstones are from Hokitika, her material come from New Zealand or sourced internationally very carefully; her practice is as non-toxic as possible.

As an interdisciplinary artist, Carlson hasalso  created a particular technique using her printmaking press on metal instead of paper. Sterling Silver is the latest medium she has chosen to talk about New Zealand; her narrative Is also  about her French ancestry and the deep connection in between her two worlds.

Inspired by Aotearoa:

The stones come from Carlson beach walks around New Zealand, she says they are the precious part of her jewellery; the Sterling Silver is carved like the wild coastal seascape and oxidised in the colours of wet sand and deep sea.


                                 Botanical Series:

Inspired by Aotearoa flowers and native fauna, Carlson has created a unique technique using her printmaking press to emboss Sterling Silver with lace from her fashion practice in France.

The texture creates a French background to her New Zealand narrative
