“Designer Airdrie Makim has been creating beautiful jewelled artistry ever since she was a child, growing up on a remote rural property in outback Australia. Now based in Melbourne, Airdrie continued her love affair with jewellery when she started her brand Joolz just a couple of short years ago – and she has been nominated for awards ever since.

Drawing inspiration from 1920s Hollywood glamour, Joolz uses a range of environmentally friendly materials, from pearls, the only sustainable gem on the planet, to recycled vintage playing cards and children’s toys. These materials create striking statement pieces in bold black & white, sometimes including a splash of red, or a dash of cream.”
