In conversation with Brie Leon Jewellery Designer, Tulla

Fondest memory of Summer?
Late afternoons having a dip and watching the sun go down - in the mountains by a waterhole or on the coast by the sea, any body of water will do.
Favourite local haunts for a long lunch?
Long lunches we tend to head towards the seaside rather than being indoors and take a bundle of rugs, endless amount of cheeses and some wine.

One piece of jewellery you’re living in this summer?
I’ve been living in my brass Zale Cuff for the last year, this style is so easy with it being Brass so it never comes off!
What are you reading/watching over the break?I’ve just started ‘The Yeild’ by Tara June Finch that’s been on my list for ages so I’m sure this will continue into the break. A very moving story on a culture dispossessed within Australia, the reclaiming of language, identity and a sense of being.
There’s a series called ‘Home’ on Apple TV which is incredible that just got released earlier this year. It captures innovative home designs around the world and the imaginative wanderings of the minds who created them. I’m slowly making my way through them but I absolutely loved the one on Maine.
Good recipe when hosting?
A rosemary, garlic and olive sourdough loaf with some balsamic and olive oil!
What are you giving your loved ones?
Some of the new 925 pieces to layer for the warmer months - the 925 square pendant, The Elle Stud Hoops and the 925 Organic Studs. I’m sure with my love for hand made ceramics there will be a few of those pieces too!
What are you keeping for yourself?
I just purchased a Giorgia Bel painting a little early for Christmas, currently in the framers but hopefully will be ready to hang at home to admire over the summer break. Also the 925 Rectangle Pendant I think will be a frequently worn piece this Summer!
Thank you Tulla!
