Pendants & Pins for Hockey New Zealand

We love creating corporate accessories for teams, organisations and groups, as it enables members to receive a meaningful memento that lasts for generations.

Recently we were asked by Hockey NZ to create bespoke jewellery for the New Zealand Men’s and Women’s hockey teams.

The hand crafted, custom made pendants and cufflinks were presented to the teams at a farewell ceremony in Auckland in July (2016), before the players departed for Rio.

Terry Evans, High Performance Director for Hockey New Zealand, says the jewellery was commissioned to commemorate the occasion.

“The players have worked incredibly hard to get to this level and representing New Zealand at Rio is a feat worth celebrating,” says Evans.

“We wanted to present each team member with a lasting gift to mark this momentous occasion, so we worked with Benjamin Clark at Benjamin Black Goldsmiths to craft bespoke pendants and cufflinks, as he came highly recommended to us.

Benjamin Black Goldsmiths was able to produce for us a stunning piece of jewellery that captured the essence of the Hockey NZ  brand and commemorate our teams' achievements for 2016. We were impressed with the ability to interpret our requirements and craft the 36 personalised pendants to a very tight deadline."

The design of the pendants and cufflinks utilises the Hockey New Zealand emblem, and the pieces were handcrafted in sterling silver.

Here are a few images of the crafting process...
