I wanted to show you some earrings I bought recently. They’re from Cloud Nine Creative, which is a design company in the North Canterbury region (I think they’re based in Ohoka). I often look at the fabulous stuff on the website and spotted a couple of contemporary designs I really liked.

One pair of earrings is from the Love Christchurch range and I LOVE the funky red colour and the white heart image. These earrings are described as reflecting “all of the lives that have been forever changed and how the heart of the city can never be destroyed”. I also like the antique bronze bezel setting and the short length.

Just as I was about to hit the Add To Cart button, I spotted another gorgeous pair of earrings called Cream and Green and with a floral pattern. I’m not usually into jewellery in the shape of flowers or with a floral pattern but these earrings are contemporary and stylish. So I added them to the cart; couldn’t resist.

Grand total of NZ74.00 plus postage, which I think was $4.50. Pretty good price for two lovely NZ designed and handmade earrings. I also liked how they arrived – nestled in a white box tied with purple ribbon and thank you card. Attention to detail and great customer service – I ordered the earrings online on a Monday and they arrived two days later on Wednesday.


The earrings arrived in a little box securely tied.


Lovely personalised Thank You message.

Aren’t these gorgeous?


The Cream and Green earrings really add some colour.
