Australian jewellery designer Christie Nicolaides has swiftly garnered a loyal international audience of discerning collectors for her unique jewellery designs characterised by a baroque sensibility and an exuberant aesthetic. Each of Nicolaides collections have been strongly influenced by her artistic upbringing, her Greek heritage, as well as a love of antique, antiquities and vintage runway jewellery. An avid art collector and frequent traveller, Nicolaides brings this passion for art, fashion and culture together with her own exotic personal aesthetic to each themed collection. Designed in Australia and handcrafted by skilled artisans throughout Asia and Europe, each collection is conceived as curated selection, made to be worn either singly or together as a complete aesthetic, from head crowns to earrings, necklaces and rings. The handcrafted collections, which feature colourful precious and semi-precious stones sourced on Nicolaides’ international travels, together with glass, enamel, and plated brass are made both to be worn in generous abundance, or with minimalist restraint as the wearer chooses. A heady mix of European bohemian glamour and 1980s excess.
