Australian fine jewellery label By Baby is designed to be contemporary yet iconic, with each ever-evolving collection heavily centred on the idea of daily diamonds. Designer Angelique Andronis’s years of experience under her renowned Australian jeweller father, Angelo Andronis, has seen her culminate modern and ancient jewellery-making techniques, evident in the refined-luxury of her pieces. The pieces that emerge from the Brisbane studio are crafted using refined solid gold and silver-plated metals, and premium quality diamonds and gemstones. Styled by the wearer as a stand-alone statement item or to become the first of a collection built up over time, each By Baby piece elevates any unique style and showcases the focal points of the body with their simplistic delicacy. A collection that is contemporary, adventurous and a little punk at heart, but pays homage to the roots of its craft, is what Angelique has created for the Brisbane based brand.
Collections which are heavily influenced by her Greek heritage, artistic upbringing and love of antiquities, a visit to Christie Nicolaides Brisbane store is a jewellery-lovers must-do. Made to be worn either singularly or together as a complete aesthetic, from head crowns to earrings, necklaces and rings, you can choose to wear the pieces in generous abundance or with minimalist restraint. Nicolaides’s unique jewellery has seen her garner a loyal international audience of discerning collectors and high-profile stylists and societal figures alike. Pieces that can be described to have the baroque sensibility and an exuberant aesthetic, each collection features colourful semi-precious stones and plated brass materials. A large number of pieces on show, hidden behind her Parisian-like store façade, will have you spoiled for choice.
Local Brisbane artist and jeweller Paula Walden represents the traditional side of jewellery while re-establishing high-quality jewellery and creating a more accessible market. Her highly sought-after pieces have been showcased in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and more. Paula is consciously influenced by the ‘contrast in line’ theory – the design and rational thought of straight line, and the reflection of feeling and being an artist in curve line. Alternating between the two in order to achieve balance within her practice, her thoughtful and well-rehearsed approach to the design of her pieces sees her as a stand-out Brisbane designer to watch.
