I've said it before and I'll say it again, in this lifetime I have been blessed with amazing nga kare/friends. Jane Sutherland is one of these friends. I've known Jane since I first starting dating my husband Pete. Pete and her boyfriend Duane were friends, so by a lovely default our paths crossed and we've remained friends ever since.
In 2004 on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Janes label was established. Jane has a love of design and "her focus is on exceptional well cut, wearable garments, encompassing clever attention to detail."
On Friday the 11th of September in Waikaia, Eastern Southland I have the pleasure of being part of a jewellery, candle and clothing collaboration with Jane at the Waikaia Hotel from 6-8pm. I'm looking forward to sharing my products with some local ladies and seeing what new designs Jane has come up with for this season. I have specifically created some recycled rubber earrings that I believe work well with Janes contempory designs. I'd also like to thank our friend Tracy Wikstrom for organising this all for us.
And the most fun thing is that after event, most of our friends and partners are gathering in Waiakia for a night together on the ran-tan. This doesn't happen often enough now but so is life. We all have whanau of our own now but I cherish these times together. You never know what is around the corner so make the most of your time with those you love.
