A carefully curated selection of antique costume jewellery. Unique and whimsical treasures sourced from trusted suppliers. I specialise in rare and unusual costume and religious jewellery, mostly from France and mainly dating from the late 1700s through to the early 1900s.
Antique assemblage jewellery crafted by hand using genuine antique costume jewellery re-purposed into new designs for necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Creations are enhanced with colourful gemstones, intricate beads, antique chains and selected elements to create harmonious designs that will become heirlooms for the future.
Extending on the concept for fabric designs, Empire de Talaru offers a range of digital collage works for hung art or tee-shirt designs. Making use of antique images and prints these fine art-quality works sell worldwide to collectors seeking 'something a little bit different'.
