Ingrid van Heusden

Seaweed Bracelet by Ingrid van Heusden

Ingrid van Heusden creates dramatic art jewellery featuring components such as human hair as well as a range of environmentally aware fashion jewellery. A self described late comer to the jewellery industry, Ingrid studied at Unitec gaining a Bachelor of Design and Visual Art in 2011. Initially working from her home studio, Ingrid recently moved into a shared studio space with 5 other contemporary jewellers in Point Chevalier.

As a jeweller, Ingrid is aware of the social and environmental impact of mining and jewellery production mixing organic materials in with her range, and endeavours to recycle off cuts and cold join where possible minimising the use of strong chemicals.

Ingrid’s current collection features earrings, necklaces and rings cast in sterling silver from individual pieces of seaweed and pohutukawa leaves - each hand finished piece is unique.
