Fodor's Expert Review Fingers
Six jewelers started Fingers in the 1970s as a place to display and sell their work. Now it showcases unique contemporary work by about 45 New Zealand artists, working with fine metals and stones. It's jewelry as art. Many of the artists have work in the New Zealand national collection, and customers who purchased items at an early stage of a maker's career are being rewarded with significant increases in value. Look out for works that combine precious metal with more mundane materials like rocks or seashells or even plastic.
