Allie Dodds is a New Zealand jewellery designer trained in Fine Arts, currently based in Sydney NSW. Her fascination with the geometries, shapes and textures of the natural world combined with her experimental artistry has led her to create an artisanal collection of precious jewels.
Originally self-taught in jewellery, she has refined her practice through extensive experimentation and further training in Jewellery manufacturing, Casting & Stone setting- utilising these traditional techniques in a contemporary way. Each piece is made to order in one-off or limited editions; designed, sculpted and finished by hand in her Chippendale studio. Her sculptural pieces are made from recycled and refined metals whenever possible, with a preference of Australian sourced gemstones & diamonds which are traceable back to the place they were sourced from.
In addition to her collections which are available in boutiques in New Zealand and Australia, Allie offers a bespoke jewellery service, working directly with clients locally and internationally to create one-off engagement rings, wedding rings and special occasion pieces.
