We are a family owned business dedicated to providing excellent and
personal customer service. Graham Glamuzina, founder and entrepreneur,
began his richly varied
business career on July 4, 1960, when he took over a small bankrupt
pharmacy in Glendene in Auckland's Wild West. Over the next 20 years
with characteristic tireless energy, a series of retail ventures were
built into a local business empire comprising land, buildings, a
photographic store, Hi-Fi shop, several video libraries and a
Meticulous planning has always been a Glamuzina hallmark. For a
number of years grandfather clock-movements were imported from Germany,
the cabinetry built locally and the finished clocks exported to Japan,
America and Australia... all operating from inside the supermarket! In
the late 1980's many of these retail and wholesale businesses, the land
and buildings were divested.
Glamuzina Corporation was formed in the early nineties when Graham,
joined by his son Phillip, firstly daughter Lisa and then subsequently
Suanne, set about developing the Studex® agency. Initially the main focus
was ear piercing.
Fashion jewellery was a logical addition but as the business
developed and its product range grew, another range was needed. In 1997,
while at a trade show in New York, Graham noticed some curious-looking
characters with stainless steel embedded in their faces... Body piercing
became a significant addition and is an increasingly mainstream fashion
