Brendon Jaine Glass Jewellery (#nzmade) products include:
Brendon Jaine (Buzz) has worked with glass his whole life, but for the last 15 years has been making jewellery full time. He lives in Invercargill with his three kids, and makes all of the pieces in his workshop at the back of his house out of discarded glass bottles and tableware.
Part of the attraction of the glasswork to Buzz is the reclamation of material that would otherwise go to landfill. In Buzz’s workshop, discarded glass is transformed into satiny, smooth, individual pieces of jewellery. The ocean, the big sky, and the landscapes Buzz lives in are apparent in the fluidity and colours of his work. Recently Buzz been hand-drawing fantastical landscapes, influenced by the spectacular vistas of Central Otago, and sandblasting them into glass.
