About Dorothy de Lautour
Dorothy graduated with a Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts in jewellery from Unitec in 2013. She is a co-founder and a resident jeweller at Whau Studios in Pt. Chevalier, Auckland.
The ability of an object, particularly jewellery, to act as a visual trigger point for personal memories is inherently important in my work. It is through a personal association that objects gain subjective meaning based on our memories, making the object more interesting, more relevant or imbued with special meanings.
