Benjamin Black (Black Matter Jewellery)
Nelson, South Island
Benjamin Black is a young, talented, award-winning jeweller based in Nelson, New Zealand. Born the son of a watchmaker, Benjamin's talent for the craft was evident from an early age. From 7 years of age, he was making rings in his father's workshop and selling them at the local markets. After acquiring an apprenticeship with an internationally acclaimed jeweller at the age of 16, Benjamin went on to become a trade certified manufacturing jeweller whilst learning from elite artisans and refining his craft. An individual style developed and Benjamin went on to establish Benjamin Black Goldsmiths in Nelson in 2013 alongside his partner, Amy. Together they have quickly established a reputation for creating beautiful custom-made jewellery that combines the finest elements of classical and contemporary design. Black Matter is the sister brand for Benjamin Black Goldsmiths - luxurious fashion jewellery made with purpose and made to last. Where young hearts meet ancient craft, your Black Matter jewellery carries with it a piece of New Zealand and the love of its creator.
