CHARITY BY DESIGN: $5 from each Pinwheel piece sold goes to the Kolling Institute
In 2018, a gorgeous woman named Nicole Pearson entered (and won!) our Be The Designer Competition. Nicole dreamed up, designed and sketched her PERFECT Ruby Olive Necklace creation.
We absolutely adored Nicole's design and we were SO excited to bring it to life. Unfortunately we were met with A LOT of unforeseen production issues. We really struggled. It was not an easy design to manufacture, but we were determined to get it right. We went through many, many, iterations and tried countless ways to solve the issues we encountered. We even postponed our annual Be The Designer competition in 2019 so we could get the design ready and launched.
What we didn't know, was that Nicole was facing her own struggle during this process too. However, hers was with Cancer.
Devastatingly, Nicole passed away before she could see her dream creation become a reality.
Nicole's sister, Lisa, messaged to tell us the news and we were instantly heartbroken. We knew how much winning this competition meant to Nicole, and it made us even more determined to create something beautiful in her honour. With the amazing support and guidance of Lisa, we used Nicole's design and developed a brooch and earrings instead of her original necklace.
This Pinwheel captures the essence and colour of Nicole's original design. Wear your Pinwheels proudly knowing you are celebrating an incredible woman, and flying the flag of her stunning art. Read the full story HERE.
This brooch is made of sturdy acrylic with a premium brooch pin. Each and every piece comes in an exclusive Ruby Olive gift box, great for gifting or storage.

Ruby Olive products have been designed and handmade by clever artisans. They are certainly very hardwearing but you still need to look after your new little treasures. You may notice small inconsistencies in colour and shape between styles but we consider this to be part of their unique beauty. It's recommended that you keep your Ruby Olive products clean and dry particularly if wood as water, perfume, hair spray and moisturiser can sometimes cause them to discolour and rub off onto other fabrics. To bring your jewellery back to life you can use a small dab of natural bees wax or polish to buff wood items and a vegetable based oil for resin items.
We use metal components which are nickel free and we support environmentally sustainable wood and shell products.
Our resin products are all hand poured and hand made by specialist artisans making each piece unique. Resin is a beautiful material that is smooth, light and very wearable. Resin is very hard wearing (unless dropped onto a hard surface such as concrete) and is able to be easily polished up to look almost brand new.
We aim to use sustainably sourced raw materials where possible and some of the raw materials we are proud to use in our designs include Coconut Shell, Recycled Floorboards and Recycled Wooden Builders Palettes.
