I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer, & maker of crafts.

Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and pretty shiny things came together while 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 specialise in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

My first love is of course jewels, but leather is a close second. I revel in the feel of beautiful buttery leather and discovered I loved creating items from it when I decided to make and design packaging for my jewellery.
