Made in Nelson, New Zealand's most established and only internationally acclaimed artisan jewellery workshop, Jens Hansen's hand-forged designs are easily recognized & have been crafted to last for generations since 1960.
From our tiny Nelson studio workshop, we make jewellery for people from all over the world who love our unique blend of timeless sculptural elegance.
Jens Hansen’s distinctive style
Jens was an artist and a sculptor, so his hand-forged jewellery is easily recognised and crafted to last.
Art historians say that he successfully transformed his European goldsmithing heritage into a native one by responding to the landscape and environment of New Zealand. His larger than life personality is reflected in the bold clean lines and expressiveness of his designs. They have the distinctive ‘Jens Hansen style’, and have been described as having ‘a kind of muscular beauty, a sensuous strength.’
Jens’ work is highly regarded nationally and internationally; he is in the Marquis Who’s Who and his designs are in the permanent collection of the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa.
