A LEADING North East designer is making Christmas shopping a little easier with the international launch of a new collection of bespoke jewellery pieces.

For anyone looking to buy a unique gift this December, luxury jewellery label Salome’s new L’Etoile collection features a stunning range of stellar-inspired designs.

Salome was founded by Newcastle-based Kellie Daniels in 2012 after people expressed interest in the original jewellery she created for herself and has since grown into an international brand.

Kellie creates her jewellery using hand-selected and natural-cut, precious and semi-precious stones from around the world, including ruby, sapphire, pearl, emerald and grey opal.

The L’Etoile collection features pieces made with the limited edition semi-precious stones, cloudy quartz and smokey quartz, cut into lunar shapes and intricate star formations.

The new pieces include earrings, bracelets and necklaces which can be purchased separately or as a complete set to create a statement jewellery look, with delicate fringe detailing and stunning geometric designs.

Salome’s striking collections, all handmade and designed by Kellie, are available to purchase online, as well as being sold in stores in Newcastle, London, Edinburgh, New York and New Orleans.

Inspiration for the collections comes from Kellie’s Louisiana roots, as well as art, architectural and natural references, combining modern and classic design.
