HAPA

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

We are a design store based in Christchurch, Aotearoa NZ, and our focus is on supporting and promoting local artists and creatives.

As part of maintaining our creative discipline and focus on our core values, we will be photo documenting a different creation each day that showcases the wealth of creative talent in our beautiful city. Each item must be created or designed by a local Canterbury based artist/designer/creator, and available for purchase in one of our HAPA stores.

As our city rebuilds around us its important to continue to value and acknowledge the creatives, the misfits, the dreamers... and the small businesses that showcase them.

We are the cracks in the pavement, the foraged flowers from demolition sites, the opportunities that arise from chaos...and we are beautiful MAURI ORA!

Day 11: Purapurawhetu, Written in The Stars


I first met Jennie from Mondays Child more than a decade ago when we worked together in a place thats part of our pre-quake lives, but a place so vivid I can still smell the native wood floorboards and feel its enveloping warmth. Its good to reflect on the past, but also remember to look up at the stars :)

Fast forward to 2017 and a jewellery making business that began as a one day a week creative venture has grown and developed into two streams of design – Atelier and Diffusion – with ranges emerging that reflect fashion, art, design, and the individual.

Jennies attention to detail is a core part of her personality... shes a person who misses nothing...observant, quick, smart, adaptable, constant and solid as a rock. We highly value her friendship as well as her creative addition to our HAPA range. Honesty and integrity of materials and workmanship are intrinsic to Mondays Child Jewellery – these are pieces that are made to last and be loved. The photo in this post is of her amazing Constellation range, beautiful pieces that tell the ancient story of the stars we were born under, customised just for you and your loved ones.
