Cleopatra’s Bling, a handmade jewellery brand from Australian designer Olivia Cummings, is set to launch in London this summer.
Founded in 2013 by Cummings, each piece is designed in Italy where she lives, with the solid gold fine range handcrafted in Florence and the demi-fine sterling silver- and gold-plated vermeil pieces, made in Indonesia and India.
Pieces are inspired by the founder’s love for travel, the ethereal, and the symbolic – a fusion of Eastern allure and Western style.
Each piece is designed by Cummings herself, from her base in Naples, where she hand-crafts wax moulds, from ancient coins she personally sources, to original designs and embellishments she carefully constructs using the techniques taught to her on her travels.
Cummings also makes a point of working with traditional craftspeople on all of her pieces and hopes the work will assist them in continuing with their craft for generations to come.
Cleopatra’s Bling will land in the UK with three collections: My Italian Summer, The Flower Woman, and Siren Song.
My Italian Summer and the Siren Song form part of the brand’s demi-fine offer, with pieces from My Italian Summer being inspired by the coastal cities and island towns of southern Italy, and Siren Song products nodding to the city of Naples
The Flower Woman is a full line of sold gold and gemstone adorned birthstone pieces, with a clear handmade touch.
Cleopatra’s Bling will officially launch in London this summer.
