A spark of fascination as a child grew into a career of extraordinary artwork for passionate carver Alex Sands. Sands (Ngāti Kahungunu o Te Wairoa, Ireland, Scotland, England) began soft stone carving at 12 years old, influenced by pounamu (jade) creations of his Māori ancestors. Over 20 years later, he founded Sands Carving Studio with his wife Preet to share his love and art with the world. Although sourcing, exploring, and creating with pounamu remains his most ardent passion, Sands also works with stone, wood, metal, and bone to carve one-of-a-kind sculptures, hei tiki, and other forms of personal adornments.

Each piece of pounamu jewellery has been made by hand and is one of a kind. Variations in the colour and shape of the pounamu stone may occur as a result. This only adds to the unique beauty and character of each piece.
