The littlelist shop with the thickest walls tucked in the back of Old Cromwell town. Marie's hand crafted jewellery is beautiful and unique. There's also a selection of her quirky cards. You have to go and have a look.

Came here on a tour of South Island tourism spots. Loved Marie's individual style and warm personality. Bought some beautiful earrings. Great wee spot to visit - my favourite in the Heritage Precinct.

Marie has an amazing talent for creating beautiful pieces that express themselves in the most unique and thought provoking way. Her story telling transcends across the entire range of products and is then enveloped with excellent packaging that further enhances the specialness of her creations.
