It’s fair to say that Luna & Rose would not be where we are today without the talents, dedication and contagious smiles of our local artisans. You’ll be happy to know that every single piece is lovingly handmade in small batches by a wee collective of family-run workshops, whether that’s our expert sandal maker Nano or our wallet crafting couple Putu and Hanafi.
Putu & Made are the bread and butter of Luna & Rose jewellery. These 2 extremely talented humans are responsible for turning our 2D design sketches into 3D 'real life' designs for us to then create moulds from to produce our collections. Their painstaking attention to detail and ability to carve, scratch, cut, shape and shine even the smallest of details literally blows our mind. Both of these guys are freelancers who work out of their home studios in amongst their roosters and brood of little mini next-gen wax-makers.
If Putu and Made are our bread and butter, Anam and his small team of silversmiths are the juicy jam in between. We’ve been working with him for the past five years and admire his dedication to his studio, while maintaining a great work-life balance. Anam’s wife and three kiddies live in Java, so every month Anam heads back home to check in and get his dose of family time. Anam has a fine eye for detail and is across every single part of our production process. We love his beautiful smile, endless nervous giggles when he tries his English on us and his passion to constantly learn and improve.
Fashion has always been my passion, but whether I was being schooled at University in Wellington or dipping a toe in the Australian scene, something didn’t sit quite right. There was so much unknown when it came to how materials were sourced, processed and transformed into the racks on racks of fast-fashion trends and no one seemed to be asking the hard questions.
After a fair amount of soul searching, globe-trotting and an international game show appearance, I was ready to make my mark with a label that was transparent, ethical and sustainable. The game show didn’t really have anything to do with that, but I couldn’t not slip that in am I right.
Though based in Bali, I’m a wanderer through and through moving between New Zealand, Australia and the home of Luna & Rose. Basically, I just go around juicing the best bits out of life, eating a hearty diet of lollies and salt ‘n vinegar chips and dipping into that pool of inspiration to design beautiful pieces for you to enjoy. Don’t mind if you do.
Let's be friends.
