Birdlings Flat Beach, about 35 minutes from Christchurch on the way to Akaroa, is a place many locals love. It’s wild, untamed, weather-beaten and filled with the most amazing flat greywacke tones that I (for one) love to collect. The beach is famous for its fishing, its dangerous currents, its quirky seaside cottages and its sea-tumbled agates, amethysts and other semi-precious stones. But it was the simple greywacke pebbles that inspired the team at Continuum to create NZ Rox, a series of fabulous wearable Touchstones ‘carved’ with classic New Zealand Maori-inspired designs. They’ve been a roaring success. So much so, they’re about to launch AusRox – a new set featuring Australian lizards, kangaroo, snakes and the like.
