About Us

Hello, I'm Hannah

Actually it's just me. I'm Hannah and I fly solo at Lola & Lane, designing and creating in my  'studio' in Nelson, NZ. Currently the studio is the kitchen table but we have almost finished our build which has a purpose built creative space, I can't wait!

I'm a graphic designer...well, I was in a past life - the one before the little people took over. I'm now a wife and mother of three small humans, a fur child, and a few goldfish thrown in for good measure.

I have always been at my happiest when I'm making/creating and discovered jewellery making by chance as I was navigating ways to heal after a PTSD diagnosis following the birth of our second child. It's a long story but the short version is this: baby #1 post-natal diagnosis of a major congenital heart defect which required life saving open heart surgery, baby #2 premature delivery followed by a frightening postpartum hemorrhage. Two life flights, two NICU stays and five years on (and another wonderful amazing healing birth and healthy child later) jewellery making is still absolutely my happy place. 

I work with polymer clay, resin, leather, glass and brass (so far) and constantly have ideas buzzing around up top waiting for a quiet moment to create. I'm quite obsessed, but that's a good thing right? 

I love creating earrings that are hypoallergenic, fun and easy to wear and as unique as you are! Please check out some customer feedback here: https://felt.co.nz/feedback/lolaandlane


RESTOCK DATES:

When I'm not child wrangling, I'm making earrings. To be efficient at both (if that's humanly possible which I've realised is not often the case) Lola & Lane will run on a monthly (or thereabouts) restock schedule where jewellery will be added to the website and once sold, won't be available again until the next restock. I can't promise that certain designs will be repeated...it depends on the direction my creativity is going in that month. Please check the website header or our Facebook and Instagram pages for our next restock date. 


WHY ARE LOTS OF STYLES SOLD OUT?

All of our pieces are unique and handmade which means they take time! I simply can't have everything available all the time, as much as I would love to.


CUSTOM ORDERS:

At this stage we are not doing individual custom orders but if you would like something adapted slightly (ie you would prefer the leather tassel earrings with a stud top instead of an ear wire) then please get in touch and we will do our best to help.


STOCKISTS:

You can find Lola & Lane jewellery at two amazing stores showcasing the work of NZ creatives, The Little Beehive Co-Op in Nelson and Sollos in Christchurch.


UPCOMING MARKETS:

I love to get out and about and meet my lovely customers! Here's the upcoming markets where you'll find Lola & Lane in 2022:
