Dutch Windmill Pendant - Ariki New Zealand Jewellery

Wow – I am always learning new things in this industry and that is why I absolutely love my job!

This week I had the privilege of being involved in launching the Dutch Windmill pendant to the market globally.
Let me tell you a little bit of what I have learnt about the windmill during this process.


If you are fortunate enough to be in Holland on the second weekend in May you will witness their National Mill day – where 950 windmills and watermills open their doors to visitors. Historically the Dutch became very innovative when it came to keeping out the water. They built dykes, fortifications and last but not least wind and watermills to create new land. Our cute wee Dutch windmill pendant pays homage to these mills which are characteristic of the Dutch landscape as well as the innovative people who built them.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to actually visit Holland myself but who knows where in the world this job may take me???
