Wellington

Nestled between the fertile rural heartland of New Zealand’s North Island, and the bountiful waters of Cook Strait, this harbour city is the country’s capital.

Surrounded by nature and fuelled by creative energy, Wellington is a compact city with a powerful mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine. It encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Strong winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname “Windy Wellington.”

I love this city, it has an energy all of its own and the sometimes blustery windy days just add to this bustling energy!

I love to spend time down at the waterfront, – it is such an inspiring place to be. I often visit Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, New Zealand’s national museum. Te Papa, as it’s colloquially known, means ‘our place’ and is one of the best interactive museums in the world. Or simply sitting in the sunshine and feeling the breeze on my face while I watch the world go by. There is often live entertainment, lovely cafés and always a stream of people making the most of the beautiful city.

Here I am reminded of:

Breeze Pendant - Sterling Silver SP1

The feel of a cool refreshing breeze on your face on a warm summer’s day is captured by our stunning Breeze pendant. The silver lines ebb and flow along the gorgeous Paua Shell cabochon smoothly and gently just as a light breeze moves the long grasses along the water’s edge.
