The lillipilli is a rainforest tree native to where I grew up in Australia. The tree is pretty, but nothing spectacular. However, if you chance upon a fruiting lillipilli then you’ll realise the fabulousness of this little tree. Lillipilli berries are the kind of colour you think can’t possibly be natural – they’re a “wow!” colour, a vibrant hot pink that's indescribably the perfect hot pink – not too girly or too fluro, but a deep, rich colour that somehow also looks like it’s lit up from within. Only years of evolution and not some designer mixing hues can produce a colour like that.
I chose to name my store after the humble lillipilli because while my work doesn’t glitter and shine, I do try to instill an element of the hot lillipilli pink ‘wow’ factor from nature into each piece.
My jewelry has simple lines and earthy tones. Each pie…
