When visiting Cromwell, make your way to Old Cromwell Town and visit Marie's boutique- you won't be disappointed. Marie's creations are unique and beautifully hand crafted.

I always visit Marie's gallery when I'm in Old Cromwell. It's an imbecilely laid out shop nestled in the Heritage Precinct. Marie is thoughtful and exact in her presentation of her work. I'd recommend asking about the inspiration behind some of the pieces. Her jewellery has marked many of my major life events. Jewellery is a personal thing, and I... More

Came here on a tour of South Island tourism spots. Loved Marie's individual style and warm personality. Bought some beautiful earrings. Great wee spot to visit - my favourite in the Heritage Precinct.

Marie has an amazing talent for creating beautiful pieces that express themselves in the most unique and thought provoking way. Her story telling transcends across the entire range of products and is then enveloped with excellent packaging that further enhances the specialness of her creations.

We were on a wine tour, and our driver Liz decided to show us the gorgeous town of Cromwell. Thanks to her decision, I was able to visit Marie's little shop. What a truly wonderful experience and it was so lovely meeting and chatting to Marie. Her jewellery is just so unique and so is Marie. So very very down... More

Went to NZ for two weeks and passed through Cromwell specifically to visit this little gallery, and it is VERY little! Marie's mother was in there the day we visited and even told us a bit about the pieces. I purchased (what I consider to be) lots! I'm even considering a personal piece to be made.

Lovely original pieces of jewellery, something different to anything i've seen in my travels. Interesting crafted china and wire creations well done, more talent in Cromwell.

Marie's studio makes. Stop in otherwise unremarkable Cromwell, well worth your time. Marie's studio is a magical little place where each piece is more exquisite than the next. Delicate, filigreed, whimsical jewelry and art pieces designed by a really lovely artist.

Marie is an incredibly talented artist and a lovely person. I now have a pair of her beautiful earrings! During our visit Marie also offered to make bespoke earrings for our 10 year old daughter as she thought none were quite right. The ones she made are perfect for our daughter as well as exquisite. Don't go to Cromwell without... More

Marie has a lovely studio that feels like a little world of its own, filled with her very special handmade collection of glass and wire jewellery and other trinkets. The jewellery has a lot of variety with pieces catering to many age ranges, and she has added her personal touch to the studio with helpful (and sometimes very funny) little... More
