  • passionate about greenstone, extremely friendly and generous with their time. Awesome greenstone carving to boot! Will return if in the region again.
  • I wanted to get a meaningful gift for someone leaving the country, Garth and Jo helped me choose a design, and gave me heaps of beautiful options within my price range! They also sent a lovely letter with the piece, explaining the meaning of the design and where the pounamu was sourced. Absolutely couldn't recommend them more highly!!!
  • The best experience of our 2 day visit to Greymouth. We were warmly welcomed by Jo who explained details of Garth's work and the history of pounamu in the area. We got to see Garth at work and saw many beautiful pieces all hand crafted by Garth. There were even some created by his children. We bought a beautiful toki and had its origin explained. It was very interesting to learn the history of each and every piece. We stayed about an hour and as we left we felt we had made new friends. A great experience which we recommend to anyone travelling through the area. We will definitely return.
  • Awesome experience! Beautiful jade that's genuine! Garth and his wife greeted us with open arms. I purchase a bracelet with 3 jade beads and and am so in love with it. Will definitely be purchasing a necklace in the future on line but would love to revisit again one day! Kind regards, Tassie Tourists Aug, 2017
  • It's really good to visit and know about the Jade that they made. Should pop in to have a look and it will be worth to go and support local. They made jade is different than the other shops. High recommend!!
