StoneArrow is a boutique artisan business that creates products inspired by the beauty of nature here in Aotearoa New Zealand. We specialise in creating high quality, sustainable, innovative, and hand-crafted jewellery made from up-cycled materials.
The foundations of our success are built on creativity, integrity, and a commitment to excellence. We also take pride in our friendly kiwi attitude; in our daily business we aim to practice respect, transparency, and generosity.
Who Are We?
StoneArrow was dreamed up by Nick Feint some 25 years ago. Nick is a kiwi creative who taught himself to make jewellery after finishing a business degree and realising he didn’t want to work for “the man”.
His first gig selling jewellery was a hi-tech operation using portable display boards in Manners Mall, Wellington (which included trying to avoid the security guards kicking him out and feeling incredibly jealous that the glass blob earring stall outsold him by a mile!).
From Wellington, Nick sold his jewellery everywhere he went – Dunedin, Nelson, London, back to Dunedin, Wainui Bay, until he finally made a home for StoneArrow in Takaka, Golden Bay in 2000.
Aside from finding joy and meaning steering the StoneArrow ship, Nick is a singer/songwriter, an enthusiastic soccer player, and a devoted father to two teenage boys. He is also one of the original founders of Tracks, a rites of passage organisation that runs programmes for young men.
Nick lives in an extremely fancy house truck with his partner Rose, son Marty, and Chaos (the cat).
Nick would never have been able to turn StoneArrow into the thriving business that it is without his dedicated and hard-working team.They are a bit shy and prefer not to be named, but they know who they are and they are awesome.
Our Workshop and Gallery
Our workshop and gallery is situated in a lovely old building that has seen many different uses, including a boarding house in the 1800’s, a bakery and several cafes.
We created our workshop in what used to be the old kitchen!This has actually turned out to be very useful with our noisy tumblers operating in the old chiller and our soldering bench under the extractor fan where the deep fat fryers used to be!
You are welcome to come in for a visit, we love showing off our workshop and the inventive ways we have developed to make the jewellery.
I'm giving away a pair of Recycled Glass Earrings to one lucky newsletter subscriber each month.
