El­ven craft: Jew­eller Steph Lusted work­ing on a piece for The Hob­bit Ar­ti­san Mar­ket which opened at Wai­tangi Park on Satur­day. The mar­ket features the work of ar­ti­sans who worked on the films. As well as Ms Lusted, who did mainly met­al­work in the props de­part­ment, the mar­ket will fea­ture a knife­smith, a bronze sculp­tor, a bone carver, a leather worker, a ce­ramic artist and oth­ers. Since work­ing on The Hob­bit, Ms Lusted has re­turned to her own jew­ellery-mak­ing prac­tice, and her new col­lec­tion is One Dark Night.

‘‘I’ve been in­spired by crea­tures of the night, bats and owls, and I’m bring­ing in hand-carved mother of pearl shell for the col­lec­tion.’’

The Hob­bit Ar­ti­san Mar­ket will be open un­til the first movie’s pre­miere on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 28.
