Relique is a boutique, original jewellery range designed and handmade by Julia Banks in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Creating since 2009, Julia designs her pieces to be clearly unique and bold, keeping left of mainstream but still everyday wearable. Many jewellery creations are one-off or Limited Editions and use components that are not readily accessible in any store. This means the likelihood of you bumping into someone else wearing the same piece is extremely rare!

"Contemporary Jewellery with Vintage Style"

A love of the Art Deco & Art Nouveau craft movements, along with strong influences echoing Gothic Architecture are hinted throughout the designs. Working out of a 1910 villa provides the perfect surrounding for inspiration.

Frustrated at the amount of packaging and throw away products, Relique's philosophy strongly reflects recycling and an ethical green aesthetic in jewellery creation and packaging. Where recycled components such as antique buttons are used, there may be traces of their previous life. These components are not brand new therefore will ooze character and history making them extremely precious to treasure and hold.

Julia has a background in Visual Arts, and is also an oil/mixed media artist.
