John And Judith Bradley

  • Biography

    Judith and John Bradley live in Fielding, New Zealand and are both in their seventies. As they had always worked with their hands over their lifetime it was a natural progression that they picked up new skills when they retired. Although they will tell you that they are busier now than when they were working full time.
    Judith had worked with beads for 10 years before retiring. She just carried on making colourful, pretty jewellery. Some of the pieces use 500 to 1000 beads taking up to 10 to 12 hours to make. Judith likes to use the New Zealand paua (abalone) as the water is cold which gives the shell a deeper colour.
    John started working with old heritage cutlery 7 years ago after meeting and marrying Judith (a product of “Older Dating” on the internet). Being a retired engineer, he likes to create new pieces and uses his skills to make the tools to manipulate the old silverware into rings, bracelets, pendants and earrings.
    Several things that they love about their lifestyle is travelling to find the old silver, meeting new people and they will tell you that life is one long holiday.
