About Simply Stone
Simply Stone Westcoast is a mother Daughter duo who both love to collect/create/share the beauty of The south Islands stones and minerals.
Mia Tennant (carver) loves to work the stones to showcase the minerals that lie within whilst also leaving them with a raw and natural finish.
Creating bold and beautiful shapes from the stones they along our rugged coastlines on the West coast, each one is unique and finished solely by hand.
Sara Cranston (daughter) covers all sales/marketing/ photography and is currently learning to carve.
Peter Tennant was a Jade carver (my grandfather and father of Mia (mum).
When Peter past away Mia inherited his tools and stone, she then taught herself to carve, after years and years of collecting stones from the beach for her gardens she then started cutting open the stones that surrounded her.
Little did she know these beautiful Serpentinites and other beach stones were amazing minerals and Pounamu full of the beauty you see in our pendants today.
