​​​​​​​A hand-written, bespoke, calligraphy service
~ specialising in 24-carat gold & silver gilding ~
Auckland, New Zealand 
Welcome! I'm Carlene ~ a calligrapher with a passion for creating hand-crafted calligraphy with meaning, 
using sumptuous inks, with classic nibs, on gorgeous papers. 
Newcastle. Calligrapher. Calligraphy.
I unite traditional dip-pen calligraphy with the warmth of genuine 24-carat gold,
and the coolness of pure silver leaf, 
adding a touch of romance to vintage writing,
and a touch of glamour to modern script.
'It's the words you read but the calligraphy you feel' *
Meaningful words, when beautifully written, create heirloom pieces for
weddings, birth commemoration, anniversaries, and celebrations. 
I will immortalise your heartfelt sentiment
in a very special way.
​​​🌿  My calligraphy studio is based at Tāmaki Makaurau - Auckland 🌿​​​​​​​
in Aotearoa - New Zealand   
You can find my work in store at 'Betty Loves Books', Newcastle, AU^
and at 'Elysium', Wellington, NZ°.
