Artisan's Cherish Christmas Showcase: Day 8


The eighth day of Cherish brings us Julia de Ville's jewellery. This range merges the intricately beautiful with the macabre, and Alison Kubler loves it.

"I chose these pieces by Julia de Ville for the intricacy of the work but also for the Gothic attitude! I enjoy the references to Victorian mourning jewellery, and the allusions to memento mori. These small earrings and necklace are at once macabre and beautiful. They offer pause for thought about life and its brevity - isn't Christmas a time to be thankful after all?"
- Alison Kubler, freelance writer and curator, Director of mc/k art consulting

Julia de Ville's jewellery is available now in our Fortitude Valley store.
