Keith Millington - Local South Canterbury Jeweller - Timaru

From an early age l was fascinated by the Ancient Goldsmiths of the past. With their precious metals, coloured gems, wisdom and skill of their craftsmanship.

Having grown up in Timaru by the ocean inspired my creative side. Working in the family engineering business and having a grandfather who was a Gemsetter was my inspiration to create objects in silver and gold. I then enrolled in jewellery making classes and visual arts studies. All the while building my jewellery techniques and learning about Die making and Electroforming. From there I went on to work for a manufacturing jeweller.

I then went on to form K.A.Millington Fine and Contemporary Jewellery with my partner Trace, focusing on designs Inspired by Nature, Ocean, Astronomy and coloured gems.

After over 30 years of creating Jewellery l’m still as inspired today as l was as a beginner.
