I am Victoria White, a one woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer.
Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and shiny pretty things came together whilst being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now.

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialize in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

Q&A

I am wondering if people ever make their own wedding bands this way?
Sharon

Congratulations, Yes, this is an ideal way to create your own wedding bands. The course would be a bespoke one for you and your partner, and we would spend some time discussing ideas, materials(combinations of), stones to be incorporated if desired. Also, the costs would be determined based on what metals you choose to use.
We could keep it elegantly simple, or get quirky and cute. Just in get in touch and we can discuss options. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
