“I love everything about jewellery. The stories, the creative process, the Instagram tags!” Leah – Hello Lovers Australia
This week we have been featured by the lovely ladies at To the Aisle Australia online magazine.
A little of the good stuff that’s waiting for you below to read the full article here.
Jewellery was always my second love. In April 2017, after 15 years in fashion at my bridal shop, I reinvented myself by launching an exclusive jewellery shop: Hello Lovers Jewellery Australia. I realized that my true passion was to make Australian-made, bohemian, jewellery for my customers.
My number one inspiration are my beautiful brides. They have always kept me inspired, even at the start of my journey when I lacked the confidence and self-belief. Even today, my biggest thrill is to be tagged on Instagram by my brides! It is the biggest complement I receive!
My favourite jewellery stories
Will always be the ones about true love. Thankfully, these happen all the time. Just last week, a bride and groom visited my shop to buy wedding jewellery. The groom told me he had proposed on their first date. These are the stories that keep me going!
I always advise brides to choose one feature item and build the entire jewellery design from there. For example, go for a show stopping pair of earrings such as our romance earrings. Then choose a simple hair piece and necklace.
For couples that have a tighter budget, I always advise that it is better to get one quality piece of jewellery, like a gorgeous pair of earrings, than a cheap set of necklace’s, earrings, bracelets, and tiara. Trust me, this will just cheapen your whole look.
My personal style is dressing for the occasion. If I am going to be a guest at a wedding, I prefer a more subtle style, like the tear drop collection. I wouldn’t want to be more blinged up than the bride.
If I’m going to a fashion event, I can glam things up with a gold statement piece like the Melbourne lux headband. Sometimes, you have to amp it up, especially when you want to compete with all the other fashionistas out there!
Thank you all x Leah
